Avey Grouws Band
"Blistering guitar and emotional vocals." (Vintage Guitar Magazine)
"This band kicks a**" (Martine Ehrenclou/Rock and Blues Muse)
"...a formidable ensemble." (Lee Zimmerman/Goldmine)
Avey Grouws Band blends blues, roots, rock and soul as powerfully as the Mississippi River runs through their home in the Quad Cities of Iowa & Illinois. Led by powerhouse vocalist Jeni Grouws and ace guitar man Chris Avey, the two-time top ten Billboard charting band are known for their gritty sound and enthusiastic shows. Sophomore album, "Tell Tale Heart", was recorded in Nashville, TN with Grammy award winner, Casey Wasner (Keb' Mo', Taj Mahal). Released September 2021, "Tell Tale Heart" debuted #7 on the Billboard Blues Album chart. Avey Grouws Band also hit #10 on the Billboard charts with their 2020 debut album, "The Devil May Care". This past year, Avey Grouws Band toured Florida, the East Coast, the Midwest including Kansas City and Topeka, and to Las Vegas to play the iconic Big Blues Bender.
The band will perform on the patio from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. (Weather permitting).
