- - -
Mumbling secrets to a flummoxed doorman, slipping dead presidents into his hand, then past the dark door, all speakeasy-like. Through the walls, the crack and thud of drums, the crisp punch of an upright bass slapping time, horns thriving on the riff, guitar wailing testimonials that would coax Trouble to check his bags at the door. The Grand Marquis are guardians of a musical portal, weaving catchy originals with classy covers. Music meteorologists, if you will, concocting their own brand of weathered styles. It's old-school jump blues, rockabilly and fiery jazz balled up into one big hit of red hot Rhythm 'n' Roll. Once injected, don't be alarmed; you might see through blurry eyes and nicotine haze the ghosts of America's musical past, conjuring delusions of 30's KC, 50's Memphis, Village hangouts, or the jazz jungle of Harlem. Yet these are merely roots from which their music grows; twisting and blending, melding until you catch a glimpse of things to come. Awaken from the intoxicating fog while their songs linger on your ear, echoing the chant of the Blue Devil, and you're sure of one thing: you gotta go back for more.

Burlesk is the Grand Marquis' Debut release from 2000. Lots of raw energy and quality original material are the hallmark of these tracks. Recorded live in studio, this captures some of the qualities that make the Grand Marquis a fantastic band to hear in person. Play it over and over.

Shelly Redmond

Great Fun!!
This Grand Marquis CD shows us that Rockabilly, Rock and Roll and Blues can be happily mixed together in an entertaining and danceable mix. Highly recommend!!!!

Erica Sundermann

Fun to party by
I loved this CD so much I had to write a review. I put it on at parties and I always get people asking who is playing. It's also fun to dance to ;) I'm glad you have it so you can buy it online now! Keep up the great tunes.

Keith Harrell

Strap on your dancing shoes.
I can't sit still when I'm playing this CD. I'm soon infected with the unique phrasing and rhythms of the Grand Marquis and I start planning out a burlesque strip tease or at least some new swing move for the dance floor.

Kansas City Call

What the music scene needs!
Where can you find a band with old-school influences that cranks out hot tunes with a modern twist? I love the sound and the beat, the beat, the beat! Kickass, interesting and sometimes dark lyrics. One of our faves at "The Call."
