    Groove Now- Basel, Switzerland - Terrie Odabi with The Northwestern All-Stars (USA) WEBSITE >>
    Atlantis - Klosterberg 13, 4051 Basel, Switzerland
    Terrie Odabi is one of the most promising new voices in international soul and blues. She has won US Blues Music Awards for Best Female Soul Blues Vocalist and Best Female Soul Blues Vocalist, as well as her album 'My Blue Soul' for Best Release Ever by an Emerging Blues Artist. Terrie has also been nominated for a Blues Award for Best Soul Blues Singer for the past three years. With Terrie Odabi we present a future blues and soul queen who is accompanied by a great band. Terrie is one of the many great blues women we're featuring at this year's Groove Now Blues Weeks Basel. Probably more international blues women than at any other comparable blues festival in the world! The backing band consists of stellar Northwestern US blues musicians Lisa Mann, Jimi Bott, Ben Rice, Louis "King Louis" Pain and Jason "JT" Thomas.

    Groove Now- Basel, Switzerland - Tribute to Great Women of Blues feat. Lisa Mann, Terrie Odabi, Ben Rice & Jimi Bott (USA) WEBSITE >>
    Atlantis - Klosterberg 13, 4051 Basel, Switzerland
    Northwestern Blues Review pays tribute to the Great Women of the Blues in Basel, Switzerland. One of Groove Now's exclusivities is that it works with selected musicians to design new projects that have never existed in this form before. In many discussions with Lisa Mann, we finalized a musical project that pays tribute to the great ladies of the blues. Lisa Mann and Terrie Odabi will play songs by great blues ladies like Bessie Smith, Sippie Wallace, Dinah Washington, Koko Taylor or Etta James with a great band, presenting the whole history of the great blues ladies. The project represents a world premiere and can only be seen in Basel, at perhaps the most exciting smaller blues festival in the world.

    Atlantis - Klosterberg 13, 4051 Basel, Switzerland
    One Of The Greatest Blues Singers & Bass Player of the Year with an Oregon All-Star Band
    The blues world isn't blessed with very many women performing at the absolute top level. Lisa Mann is one of them. She is an expressive singer, great bass player, composer and bandleader. It's not for nothing that she's been named best blues bassist several times in the USA. We believe that Lisa has one of the best female voices in international blues today, alongside Danielle Nicole, Bonnie Raitt, Susan Tedeschi and Vanessa Collier. With an all-star band from the state of Oregon with one of the best young blues musicians, Ben Rice, and top drummer Jimi Bott, Lisa is bringing an absolutely top band to Basel. Lisa and her all-star troupe guarantee a first-class blues evening.
