About

Magnolia Blue preaches the funk to the congregation of the mid-Atlantic, bringing hip-swinging, booty-shaking deliverance to crowds far and wide since 2010.

Magnolia Blue features a driving second line horn section, guitar playing that seems like it should require seven fingers on each hand and New Orleans-style piano and organ, all anchored by rock-solid bass and drums that will move your body from the sub-atomic level on up. Up in the front line you find soulful male vocals as well as a fabulous female singer who is way too classy for the rest of us, except when she isn’t.

It’s not just music, it’s an experience. This is a group that comes ready to party. The band dresses sharp and gets the crowd moving. Hallelujah, the funk has spoken!

We play New Orleans style funk and danceable jams. Example music: Dr. John, The Neville Brothers, Maceo Parker, New Orleans Suspects, Stevie Wonder.
