Lisa Mann and Her Really Good Band are currently the Cascade Blues Association’s choice for Contemporary Blues Act of the Year. Bandleader, vocalist and bassist Lisa Mann took home two additional Muddy Waters Awards for Female Vocalist of the Year and Bass Player of the Year as well. She also won the Portland Music Award for Outstanding Achievement in Blues. Her latest rockin’ blues CD, Satisfied, has been featured on radio stations nationwide and around the world, including Blues Deluxe and Sirius XM’s Bluesville. Don Campbell of the Oregonian calls her a “gifted composer and vocalist.”

Lisa and Her Really Good Band (guitarist Jeff Knudson, keyboardist Brian Harris, and drummer Michael Ballash) will be joining forces with the exceptionally talented Diane Blue, coming all the way from Boston, MA to tour the Pacific Northwest. This vocalist and harp player is an energetic crowd-pleaser, serving up her spin on soul, blues and R&B. She has performed with such blues luminaries as Ronnie Earl, Luther Guitar Jr. Johnson, Big Jack Johnson and “Soul Queen of New Orleans” Irma Thomas. She was voted Outstanding Female Singer in The Blues Audience 2011 Reader’s Poll, and won the 2010 Massachusetts Blues Challenge, sending her to Memphis to compete in the International Blues Challenge.

It was at the International Blues Challenge that Lisa and Diane met, and they both knew they were destined to work together. Don’t miss this exciting double bill! Co-sponsored by the Cascade Blues Association- just show your CBA card and you’ll receive a dollar off admission. $10 at the door, seating is limited so be sure to call Jimmy Mak’s at 503-295-6542 if you’d like to make dinner reservations and guarantee a great seat!

    Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent. These two women together rock the bluz and should be heard!

    Jimmy Maks is one of the best venues in portland! I’ve heard Lisa Mann is amazing, but I’ve never seen her. This would be a great opportunity!

    I have never been to Jimmy’s but have always wanted to. And I am sure they would appreciate me winning so the “strange person” will stop smashing their face to the glass and drooling during performances.

  12. Erin V February 13, 2013 at 13:47 #

    This would be the height of awesome to win! My boyfriend is a lifelong Blues lover, and he’s transformed my life with the sound. This would be an incredible way to spend our Valentine’s weekend together.

  13. Kelsey February 14, 2013 at 15:12 #

    I have never had the pleasure of hearing Lisa play.. Lets change that. !!!!

  14. Oscar February 14, 2013 at 15:23 #

    I would love to go with my mom because I have never been to Jimmy Mak’s and music is a huge thing that my mom and I share in common.

  15. Jeff February 14, 2013 at 15:24 #

    Oh, Jimmy Mak’s, Jimmy….
    Oh, Jimmy Mak’s
    When are you comin’ back?

    PDX Pipeline is callin’ me on the phone
    About three times a day….
    No, my heart’s not belivin’ to
    What they have to say….
    But this loneliness I have within
    Keeps reachin’ out to see Lisa Mann!!

  17. Bobbie February 14, 2013 at 15:51 #

    Get us out of Hillsboro!!!! We’ll need some good music and a drink after a day hosting Zwickelmania…

    Mann, what a band!

  19. SueRay February 14, 2013 at 16:52 #

    I’ve been singing the blues since I moved here in November. Might as well hear the professionals do it.

  20. Frank Byers February 14, 2013 at 17:22 #

    It’s been years since I’ve been to the Waterfront Blues Festival, and hearing someone sing the blues on stage is probably the best way to have hope for the human experience.

  21. trango February 14, 2013 at 23:30 #

    OOOH! Just recently started listening to soul… would love to experience some live Blues. Make some comparisons, convert? Who knows!

  22. Anne February 15, 2013 at 09:29 #

  23. Nora February 15, 2013 at 15:09 #
