Paula Harris, The Beasts of Blues and the Big Ass Brass

Paula Harris

“If Etta James fronted the Tower of Power- and they were a blues band- THAT is what Paula Harris sounds like!” She delivers a mix of Impudent, Humorous, and Naughty Lyrical content in a Fusion of Blues, Funk and Jazz. Her band, the “Beasts of Blues” and her Horn section “Big Ass Brass” are world-class, and they put on a show that is as impressive as their sound.

Featured in the band are prolific horn players Mike Rinta, Tom Poole, & Tony Peebles, who have worked with acts such as Sly & the Family Stone, Etta James, Boz Scaggs, Santana, Lenny Williams and MANY more. Also in the band is 17 year veteran drummer with Little Richard- Derrick Martin; Keyboardist from the James Brown Band- Simon Russell; long-time Bay Area Bass musicians and session players Terry Hiatt on guitar, and Joey Fabian on bass complete the Rhythm Section.

Paula Harris and the Beasts of Blues won the 2012 Battle of the Bands for the Golden Gate Blues Society and the San Francisco Bay Area, the 2012 Monterey Blues Festival’s Battle of the Bands, and finished in the top three worldwide in Memphis at the International Blues Challenge (after receiving standing ovations at all stages of the competition!). They are also nominated for a Blues Music Award and a Blues Blast Music Award as “best new Artist”, as well as for the “Sean Costello Rising Start Award” for 2013.

This group is being touted as one of the hottest most original bands to hit the blues scene in years.
