First Shows of the Year! Let's Rock it!

*
APRIL 11th, WED ~ JJ THAMES & THE VIOLET REVOLT ~  https://www.iamjjthames.com/
JJ Thames is Mississippi/New Orleans based Malaco Records blues/rock/soul artist, and frontwoman for the 5 piece band.
A high energy mix of blues rock, traditional juke joint blues, funk, and vintage soul/R&B.
JJ is the front-woman of the Violet ReVOLT and possesses the mesmerizing je ne sais quoi star-quality of  Tina Turner, Etta James, Janis Joplin, and Phyllis Hyman all in one raw, often wistful, always powerful and passionate voice. Yet, there is a mixture of Mississippi juke joint blues, "Come to Jesus" gospel,  elemental B-Boy hip-hop, energetic rock and Chicago blues guitar licks, tight old school Motown harmonies, and roots reggae woven throughout the foundation which diversifies JJ and the Violet reVOLT in a way that is unexpected and pleasantly surprising. Ms. Thames masterfully draws you in to live out her brash and honest musical stories with her words, moans, hollers, and scats with perfectly timed pauses, swells, and whispers. She is a visual artist who effortlessly uses her voice to paint on the canvas of the listener's heart. To hear her leading the Violet ReVOLT into superstardom is to be colored amazed.

"Jj Thames is the future of the blues"- Dorothy Moore- "Misty Blue" Legendary Recording Artist

‘"Relentless energy’ might be an adequate way to describe what Thames delivers to her audience from the bandstand. Regardless of where or when she’s playing, the mighty Thames is going to give every ounce of her blood, sweat and tears to make sure her crowd is fully engaged. Obviously, she was born with the desire to bring it every single night..." - Blues Blast Magazine

 "She puts a positive spin and contemporary touch on the blues while being deeply respectful of the female blues trailblazers.  You hear the echoes of Chess, Bluebird and Stax in her blues-soul repertoire...her voice can both thrill and heal you." - Elmore Magazine

"If you are looking for that ‘surprising new singer’ you discovered that has ‘the voice to back it all up’’ shock yourself [with Jj Thames].  She is not well known now, but I doubt that will last long.  She leaves you wanting to hear her more!" - No Depression Magazine

It’s clear that soul-blues is her calling. At age 30, Thames’ stage presence and vocal delivery are more reminiscent of singers from the golden era of the artform than they are of most blues belters on the scene today. Her delivery is never rushed, and her ability to express deep emotion is on par with someone twice her age as she delivers everything from downhome juke joint stylings to full-blown torch songs, all containing messages of positive affirmation.
-Marty Gunther Blues Blast Magazine
