7th Annual Wild Women of the Blues
Peaches Staten & The Groove Shakers
Peaches Staten & The Groove Shakers
Peaches Staten is a world-class entertainer who is known for jet-setting across continents spreading the joy of blues. One week she is in Europe, the next in South America, back to the states then off again at the drop of an e-mail to some corner of the world entertaining the masses. Here we find her standing as the last blues artist to do a live recording at the original Buddy Guy’s Legends. It is the last Sunday before it relocates after 21 years of being on the corner of South Wabash just steps away from Chicago’s Blues Festival Grounds.
Staten was born in Doddsville MS. and raised in Chicago on a steady diet of blues, soul, gospel and R&B fed to her by her mom who was a member of the Whale’s Inn Cicero Bunch Social Club and her stepfather was the DJ. She began her professional career in a zydeco band and an Afro Brazilian Samba ensemble and has gone on to work with the best that the blues has to offer and grace stages all over the globe. Her new CD, Live at Legends, is electric and Staten is engaging and energetic with a person- ality that pulls you into her inner cycle. She’s not only the entertainment but she’s also your hostess, your seatmate, your date and BFF all at the same time. She is an in- credibly talented player and surprises the audience when she plays it on boogie blues tunes like “Hole in the Wall” or zydeco-influenced originals like “Gotta Find My Man.” Her rhythmic style and musicality are impeccable and though you can’t see it
on record her high chorus line kicks and flirty two stepping give the audience a jolt which is translated into sound on Live at Legends!

Blythe Gamble
Blythe Gamble first started playing music as a very young girl with her father and her family.She discovered at an early age that she loved music, and the stage. She has lent her vocal talents to many well known bands and has performed in venues all across the United States. She has also had a solo act since age 17. She is a single mother of a beautiful 15 yr old woman, Soulja, who is the absolute light of her life and gives her pride and joy each and every day. "Although I have experienced great tragedies in this life, each day I am grateful for my life, my loves, and living my musical dreams that ignite my inner passion." That passion shows up loud and clear in each performance. This woman does not know how to hold back. Her voice hits you like a tidal wave. One you delight to drown in.
