‘Queens of the Blues’ featuring Gina Coleman and Misty Blues

QUEENS OF THE BLUES is a tribute production by Gina Coleman and Misty Blues which pays homage to four matriarchs of the blues: Bessie Smith, Big Mama Thornton, Ruth Brown and Koko Taylor. Gina sings with gusto and pure vibrato as she enchants audiences with endearing stories and powerful performances of iconic songs from these pioneering women of color.

2019 International Blues Challenge finalist Misty Blues hails from Berkshire County, Massachusetts, and have been on the blues music scene since 1999 playing original and traditional blues with hints of jazz, soul, funk and tent revival gospel. The core band features lead vocalist extraordinaire Gina Coleman, Seth Fleischmann on guitar, Bill Patriquin on bass, Rob Tatten on drums, and Aaron Dean on saxophone.

In the summer of 1999, Gina Coleman was performing in the Williamstown Theatre Festival production of “A Raisin In The Sun.” That production featured the acting of Ruben Santiago Hudson, Viola Davis, Kimberly Elise and Gloria Foster. Coleman was cast as a gospel singer. Nearing the end of the show’s run, Ruben Santiago Hudson gave Coleman a CD collection entitled “Men Are Like Streetcars.” He told her that her voice was well suited for the blues and urged her to take that next musical direction. Coleman heeded his advance, and after 24 years, Misty Blues has stood the test of time.

The band has recorded with Eric Gales, Charles Neville and Joe Louis Walker, and opened for contemporary blues artists like Tab Benoit, James Montgomery, John Primer, Roomful Of Blues, Albert Cummings and Michael Powers. Misty Blues performs extensively throughout New England and has toured the continental U.S., the UK, and Canada. The band has been nominated for a few Independent Blues Music Awards and their original recordings have broad international airplay.
