Texas-born, Louisiana-raised pianist, songwriter and vocalist Marcia Ball — the official 2018 Texas State Musician — will perform at Sportsmen’s Tavern in Buffalo on Monday, November 4, 2019. Ball has won worldwide fame and countless fans for her ability to ignite a full-scale roadhouse rhythm and blues party every time she takes the stage. Ball’s rollicking Texas boogies, swampy New Orleans ballads and groove-laden Gulf Coast blues have made her a one-of-a-kind favorite with music lovers all over the world. Her latest album, Shine Bright , produced by Steve Berlin of Los Lobos, is full of everything music fans love about Marcia—rollicking two-fisted piano, soulful vocals, a top-shelf band of Texas and Louisiana musicians, and Marcia’s magnificent songwriting. In 2018 she was inducted into the Austin City Limits Hall Of Fame. In 2019, Ball won the Blues Music Award for Best Instrumentalist-Piano. She also won the 2019 Living Blues Award for Most Outstanding Musician (Keyboards) in both the Critics’ and Readers’ Polls. Expect a rollicking night of rolling Louisana blues including tunes from her latest album like “Shine Bright” “When the Mardis Gras is Over” and “I’m Glad I Did What I Did.”
