Tonight on Under The Radar, host John Todd is thrilled to have The Grand Marquis in the building to feature some of their new music from their upcoming CD. Tune in for obscure hidden gems of rock from here and around the world this Thursday at 10PM!
About the band:
The Grand Marquis have that classic, timeless ‘straight-from-the-Kansas City-speakeasy’ sound while injecting a vibrant relevance into their brand of hot swinging jazz & jumping blues. Versatile and buoyant, distinct and refreshing – a rhythm cocktail served by masterful musical mixologists.
The Grand Marquis’ music can bring to mind a variety of settings and places as well: Prohibition-era KC, the streets of New Orleans, 1950′s Memphis and even 1930′s Paris. But their sound remains grounded in a roots influence that keeps inspiring the Grand Marquis to create, innovate and build off a solid foundation of American music. Theirs is a style that defies the limitations of category, whether jazz, blues or swing, yet finds favor with a wide audience culturally, demographically and intergenerationally.
