Big Mike Aguirre and The Blu City All Stars have become one of the premier soul and blues bands in St. Louis. They are known for playing music of the Mississippi River: St. Louis Blues, Memphis Soul, New Orleans Funk, and everything in between.
With a repertoire that encompasses blues, R&B, jazz, pop classics and the great American songbook, vocalist Marsha Evans has earned her place among the most in-demand entertainers in the Midwest as well as her title, the River City Show Stopper.
Ted McCready has a soulful voice with an R&B groove -oriented music style. His influences come from Luther Vandross, Paul Carrack, Michael McDonald, Paul Rodgers, George Michael, Seal, Prince, and Stevie Wonder.
In 2010 Mo Egeston is returning to his roots as a pianist fronting his own group, the Mo E Trio. Styles referenced include soul, jazz, bossa, r & b, organic house grooves and drum and bass; however no genre is considered off limits!
The FBBB takes classic New Orleans brass tunes and gives them a twist, in the style of Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Rebirth and Bonerama. But don’t be surprised if you also hear some Motown, Southern rock, Memphis soul, Chicago blues and St. Louis R&B in the mix.
