Missisippi Heat

Missisippi Heat

MISSISSIPPI HEAT (3 – 6 pieces): This group celebrated its tenth anniversary, in 2001, with two bonus tracks added to their HANDYMAN CD.  Pierre Lacocque, the bandleader, has grown with this group and has developed a sound that is clearly his own.  The Mississippi Heat is known for producing upbeat, smooth, soulful, engaging, contemporary Chicago style blues!  Playing traditional blues with a unique sound, bandleader and composer, Pierre’s vision has never wavered since he founded the band.  His mantra is clear and focused.  His music is traditional because it is steeped in Chicago’s golden sounds of the 1950′s: Muddy Waters,  Howlin’ Wolf, Jimmy Reed, Jimmy Rogers, all the great harp players…Big and Olittle Walter, The Sonny Boy Williamsons, Junior Wells, George Smith and many extraordinary contemporaries such as Kim Wilson, Rod Pizza and Paul DeLay.  (6 Piece Includes 2 Guitars, Harmonica, Bass Guitar, Drums and Female Vocals and sound system.)
