About The Event
Laurie Morvan Band is a 5-piece high energy, rockin’ blues band based in Long Beach, CA that honed its distinctively tight sound through joyful, relentless, and ever-expanding touring throughout the USA, Canada, Mexico and Europe, amassing over 80 festival performances along the way.
In addition to Laurie’s fiery guitar work, Laurie Morvan Band performances feature crowd-pleasing harmonies of backup singer/percussionist Lisa Morvan along with dueling solos between Laurie and keyboardist Tom Salyers, fueled by the tight-as-nails rhythm section of bassist Pat Morvan and drummer Robert Gates.
The band’s “Fire It Up!” CD won the Blues Foundation Award for Best Self-Produced CD at the 2010 International Blues Challenge (IBC), a worldwide competition held in Memphis, TN. The Big Ten TV Network featured the Laurie Morvan Band in their very own half-hour TV special, which was filmed live at the Elnora Guitar Festival in Champaign, IL and was aired nationwide. Continuing the lineage of recording excellence, the band’s next release, Breathe Deep, was a semi-finalist for Best Self-Produced CD at the 2012 IBC.
