Alexis P. Suter Band's B'Day Bash!
"It's a rare thing to share the stage with great talent like that young lady" - B.B. King
"She is one of those wonderful spirits, she's got her arms around you; you can feel that." - Levon Helm
Fully integrating the depth and warmth of Gospel music with the the grit and deeper sensuality of the Blues, this release blends them seamlessly into a masterpiece of modern day Blues music. I love the way they roll, with this release. This will set them apart from the crowd, and earn them many new fans while cementing their place among the elite of the Blues. - ChefJimi Patricola - Blues411
“Without a doubt the biggest voice and heart in the blues world today.” - Richard Briggs, Pres/Founder, Briggs Farm Blues Festival
Raised in Brooklyn, NY by a musically gifted family, Alexis P Suter was infused with the passion and the belief that music is to be an emotional and spiritual experience. With the gospel tune “I Just Got Off That Devil’s Train” sung as a duet on their most recent CD, "Be Love", with her 96 year old Mother Carrie. Miss Suter brings abundant love and energy into each of her performances. At an Alexis P. Suter Band show, the audiences dance and sing along to rollicking roots songs or funky blues numbers; then a few songs later are wiping tears stirred by an awe-inspiring version of "Let it Be" or other songs that touch deeply. Alexis and her band are not just another musical act, but an energetic and emotional experience that fans return to time after time.
Alexis and her core band, fellow Brooklyn natives Raymond Grappone (drummer) and Vicki Bell, (vocals and percussion) have been making music together for nearly twenty years. Grappone and Bell own and operate the Hipbone Records label. Recently, accomplished musician and fellow Brooklyn native, Michael Louis joined the band as lead guitarist. This was the magical combination of talents needed to open musical doors and lift the band to new musical levels.
