Blue Empress All-Stars

Blue Empress All-Stars featuring Australian blues sisters: Fiona Boyes, Cara Robinson, Julz Parker Leesa Gentz, Anna Scionti, Ali Penney & Sweet Felicia

Blue Empress Artists is proud to present the spectacular nine-piece Blue Empress All-Stars, a group of Australia’s finest Blues and Roots artists, ready to grace the stages of Blues on Broadbeach 2022.

Fronted by seven Blues sisters, Fiona Boyes, Cara Robinson, Leesa Gentz, Julz Parker, Anna Scionti, Alison Penney, and Sweet Felicia, they are joined by Hammond B3 and sax maestro, Tim Neal, and drummer/percussionist Mark Grunden. With more than 120 national and international awards between them for their individual performances and recordings, they are a force to be reckoned with!

From the Classic Era of the great 1920s Blues women, they will take you on a road trip from New Orleans, up the Delta and through the Mississippi Hills, to Memphis and Chicago via Appalachia and the Piedmont, finally taking a swing out to the West Coast and down into Texas. Whatever your style of Blues is, you’ll hear it from these artists – but don’t get fooled into thinking this is a Blues cover band.

While these various Blues styles are apparent, from vintage to contemporary, they are clothed in the original songwriting and virtuoso performances of these celebrated Aussie artists. Having such a diverse mix of talented artists on stage together, this will be a Blues on Broadbeach first and we can’t wait to see it in all its glory.
