Marcia Ball has won worldwide fame and countless fans for her ability to ignite a full-scale roadhouse party every time she takes the stage. Born in Orange, Texas and raised in Vinton, Louisiana, her deep Acadian heritage and a lifetime of absorbing Gulf Coast rhythm and blues is evident in her original songs and the classics she chooses to cover. This has made her a one-of-a-kind favorite with music lovers all over the world. With each new release, her reputation as a profoundly soulful singer, a boundlessly talented pianist and a courageous, inventive songwriter continues to grow. Her love of the road has led to years of soul-satisfying performances at festivals, concert halls and clubs.

  • “Rollicking, playful, good-time blues and intimate, reflective balladry…her songs ring with emotional depth,” raves ROLLING STONE.
  • “A welcome ray of sunshine…Ball is a killer pianist, a great singer and songwriter. Potent blues, sweet zydeco, soulful, fast and furious Texas boogie…heartfelt, powerful and righteous,” says BILLBOARD.
  • “Marcia Ball plays two-fisted New Orleans barrelhouse piano and sings in a husky, knowing voice about all the trouble men and women can get into on the way to a good time,” remarks THE NEW YORK TIMES.

“Marcia Ball is a blues legend and we are thrilled she is coming to Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club,” stated Suzanne Bresette, Managing Director of Programming at Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club. “We don’t see how you can be a legitimate blues club without having legendary blues icon Marcia Ball take the stage at some point in time – so we are happy she is coming to Jimmy’s this month!”
