“A sensational, saucy singer and superb pianist… where Texas stomp-rock and Louisiana blues-swamp meet” - USA Today
“An irresistible, celebratory blend of rollicking, two-fisted New Orleans piano, Louisiana Swamp rock and smoldering Texas blues from a compelling storyteller.” – Boston Globe
"Like most of the great blues singers, Ball has a throaty, penetrating voice and a style that manages to combine romance, sorrow  and defiance.” – People
Payomet's dance floor will be - for the 8th year in a row! - a sea of bodies in motion on Sunday, July 2.  Singer/pianist Marcia Ball and her band know how to raise roofs and tear down walls with an infectious, intelligent and deeply emotional brand of southern boogie, rollicking roadhouse blues and heartfelt ballads. Over the course of her three-decade career, Ball has earned a huge and intensely loyal following all over the world. Her exquisite piano playing and passionate, playful vocals fuse New Orleans and Gulf Coast R&B with Austin’s deep songwriting tradition into a sound No Depression described as “a little rock, a lot of roll, a pinch of rhythm and a handful of blues.”  Her band is so tight, absolutely rockin, too.  Fun, fun, fun!!
