Nominated for Best Blues Single of the Year by the L.A. Music Awards, New Blues Revolution continues a long winning streak. In 2011, the Los Angeles Blues Society invited them to host their most successful JAM session yet. They set a box office record performing at the House of Blues on the Sunset Strip and draw impressive crowds at other top nightclubs (including the House of Blues in Anaheim), concerts and festivals all over the United States and Europe.**
Forging a unique, distinctive style featuring Bill Grisolia's vocals and piano and Chap Cooper's guitar, the New Blues Revolution bring exciting showmanship to a mix of high-energy blues, rock, and ballads - modern but soulful.**
New Blues Revolution opens for a diverse range of music legends including Tab Benoit, Macy Gray, Dionne Warwick, Rick Derringer, Burt Bacharch, Leon Russell, Johnny Mathis, Blood Sweat & Tears, Three Dog Night, Michael Schenker and Katey Segal.**
A favorite of critics, The New Blues Revolution receives rave reviews from national trade magazines. Critics recognize NBR's exciting talent and their extraordinary songwriting. Bill's song "Rosarita" was honored at the Hollywood Talent Fest. Bill's song "Heart of America" was added by Armed Forces Radio to play in 175 countries and selected by the American Red Cross Los Angeles Chapter for a video to be played at the Forum for a Wave radio station concert.**
The band's exciting live show makes for great TV. Television appearances include live satellite broadcasts from New York City to prime-time television in Spain. Broadcast performances in major U.S. television markets (UPN in Los Angeles) confirm the appeal of the band's music across the U.S. Los Angeles television appearances include KNBC, KCAL, KCOP and KMEX including the number one morning show in the LA market.
