Blue Soul Express
Blue Soul Express is a five piece band out of Grand Rapids, Michigan. The band is led by the resonating vocals of Brenda [Sookie] Harris, along with the R&B infused guitar of Darryl Matthews, Keith Andrasko on keyboards and a rock solid rhythm section of bassist, Mark Hicks and drummer, Mark Jilbert.
The bands style is as varied as their influences; modern blues with a classic soul emphasis. Blue Soul Express blends together blues, jazz, R&B, soul and funk that is both fresh and timeless in their energetic sets. The group entertains audiences throughout West Michigan at venues from Grand Rapids to Kalamazoo, performing at local clubs, private parties, weddings and events.
The group was honored to be one of six bands invited by West Michigan Blues Society two years standing to participate in the regional Final International Blues Challenge in 2016 and 2017.
In October 2016, the group released their CD "This Little Love" which is available on iTunes and CDBaby. The
album and band were nominated for 3 categories in the local radio WYCE Jammie Awards, including
Best Blues Soul Album of the Year, Best New Artist and Best Album of the Year.
