Lauren Mitchell Band – Spreading the Good Word of the Blues

A voice.
A band.
A new CD.
A presence to reckon with.

“Lots of people can sing, and many can sing well. And like any good performer, I have the voice, classical training, and years of study and real-world experience in musical theatre, opera, gospel, rock, blues, and more… gotta learn the rules before you can break 'em!” – Lauren Mitchell

What the buzz is about with The LMB!

“Lauren Mitchell is one of the best I've seen.  She is on her way to that place that makes us smile when we get to see the best.  Check her out, an incredible act, and a fine CD.”                      
Tommy Lee Cook, Owner, The Buckingham Blues Bar, February 17th, 2013

“Much thanks to Lauren Mitchell and her band for another amazing evening at The Alley Blues, Sanford. One of the best sounding shows we've ever had..”
Richard Boogaart, The Alley Blues, Sanford, Florida, February 2nd, 2013

“Lauren manages a pretty neat trick as a performer. She can deliver a fully sensual version of “I Just Want To Make Love To You,” complete with some gyrations and leg kicks on top of the Hammond B3 – then go right into a gospel number without giving her audience whiplash. The guys love the form fitting  pants and the women are drawn to her “Just one of the girls” personality.”
Paul Wilborn, Executive Director, The Palladium, January 28, 2013

“On display was the real soul of the BLUES world.  I don’t often pick an individual artist on a day like this.  They were all wonderful and performed at their best----but I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the BLUES singing of Lauren Mitchell.  All I can say is “WOW”.”
Al Kanovsky, Jazz & Blues Florida, November 14, 2012

“Frontwoman Lauren Mitchell and her galvanizing pipes are backed by a gang of seasoned rock ‘n rollers and bluesmen, all of whom share Mitchell’s affinity for raw power tempered by polished technique.”
Sara Moone, Herald-Tribune, July 24, 2012

“I credit the buzz of energy here to The Lauren Mitchell Band live on stage, with their eponymous lead singer looking sassy in denim and red high heels, purring and roaring into the microphone and tossing her curly mop about with true rock star abandon. When I arrive, she’s on stage, visibly feeling the music, lifting and lowering her very well-defined eyebrows and gesticulating wildly with a single diva-esque hand.”
The Scenestress, Herald-Tribune, August 2, 2011

Lauren is also a spokesperson for Where Will We Go, The Bay Area’s Live Music Connection
