Who doesn't love a good story? Each one of us has tales to tell. Singer and songwriter Lisa Marie gets to share thousands of stories with a diversity of musical partnerships that span a multitude of genres: rhythm and blues, rockabilly, soul, gospel, bluegrass, gypsy jazz, zydeco, honky tonk, rock and roll, pop, boogie woogie, ragtime, Dixieland, traditional jazz, latin, big band swing, Tin Pan Alley, foot-stompin’ hillbilly bop, roots and folk music from many countries. There is always blues on the table, but also so much more.
C’mon out to a show and see what all the fuss is about!
Lisa Marie & All Shook Up
What began as a side project soon grew into a full-time gig... Its original intention was to bring talented musicians together from all over New England. Lisa Marie was on a mission to introduce everyone to each other and to bring them all to brand new audiences, and this was her way of doing it, one show at a time.
All Shook Up grew into an enormous collective of rotating musicians and the ASU tagline was “Never the same show twice!” It was risky, creative and exciting, and Lisa Marie believed that it could result in new projects, which it did – with many musicians discovering new band members at an ASU gig, starting new bands, and developing new friendships. It was also tremendously fun.
This musical adventure has lasted for nearly two decades.
Lisa Marie & All Shook Up with Johnny Juxo
Roots, rock and roll, New Orleans rhythm and blues, and boogie woogie SOUL!
"Combine the magnetic forces of Lisa Marie on vocals and percussion; Johnny Juxo on piano, organ, squeezebox and vocals; truly energetic performances and the songwriting skills of two of New England's premier musicians – and you've got one helluva party!"
The dynamic duo of Lisa Marie & Johnny Juxo can be found all over New England (and as far south as New Orleans) performing with Boston's own Lisa Marie & All Shook Up; they are both also members of the band Juke Joint 5.
The ASU trio combines Lisa Marie and Johnny Juxo with either drums or saxophone, and for larger venues, expands to a high energy four-piece band. Roots, rock and roll, early New Orleans R&B, honky tonk, zydeco, rockabilly, boogie woogie, soul
