August 12…..Cactus Theater Presents: An Evening with Marcia Ball: Louisiana-Swamp-Boogie-Jazz-Rock-Blues! - The title track of Marcia Ball’s latesta lbum, "The Tattooed Lady And The Alligator Man" - is an irresistible tale of true love at the traveling carnival. It’s a story that nobody but Ball could spin, filled with vivid details, universal truths and a rambunctious sense of fun and desire. With raucous horns punctuating Ball’s legendary piano playing and emotional, melodic vocals, the song kicks off a CD of eleven dazzling originals and one stirring cover. The release mixes Ball’s Gulf Coast blues, New Orleans R&B, swampy Louisiana ballads, and jumping, Tex-Mex flavored zydeco into a one-of-a-kind musical gumbo - a sound she has been perfecting over the course of her legendary career. Her love of the road has led to years of countless performances at festivals, concert halls and clubs all over the world. The Texas-born, Louisiana-raised musical storyteller’s groove-laden New Orleans boogie, deeply soulful ballads and rollicking blues have won her an enormous, loyal and still-growing fan base. She’s received a total of ten Blues Music Awards (and a whopping 44 nominations), seven Living Blues Awards and five Grammy Award nominations. She has been inducted into both the Gulf Coast Music Hall Of Fame and the Louisiana Music Hall Of Fame. Always a songwriter of great renown, Ball delved deeper into songwriting than she ever had in her career with her Grammy-nominated 2010 Alligator Records release, "Roadside Attractions", creating one of her best and most personal albums. On 2014’s "The Tattooed Lady And The Alligator Man", Ball continued that trajectory, drawing her listeners deep into her music with instantly memorable melodies and imaginative imagery. Her songs paint vibrant musical pictures richly detailed with larger-than-life characters, regional flavors and colorful scenes both real and imagined. Featuring her stellar, road-tested touring band, with help from friends Delbert McClinton and Terrance Simien and production by Grammy-winner Tom Hambridge (Buddy Guy, Joe Louis Walker, James Cotton, Susan Tedeschi), "The Tattooed Lady And The Alligator Man" is happy, moving, joyful, stirring, thought-provoking, danceable and fun. An engaging entertainer, Marcia Ball is a fan's delight and the Cactus Theater proudly welcomes her back for what promises to be a wonderful evening of musical magic. Reserved floor seats $20-$25; standard balcony $15; limited box seats $40 - which includes concessions with ticket.
