The simple mention of a Louisiana or Texas roadhouse conjures up images of a crowded dance hall filled wall-to-wall with rabid music fans rocking to a hotter-than-hot band playing a smoldering blend of swampy R&B, jumping blues and heart-wrenching ballads. Pianist, vocalist, songwriter Marcia Ball brings that spirit to every concert she plays and every song she records. Her music is mixed with equal parts simmering soul fervor and two-fisted piano pounding, featuring rollicking roadhouse rave-ups and soulful Gulf Coast R&B.
