The Capitol Region Blues Network presents:
ALEXIS P SUTER BAND
Alexis P. Suter is the owner of that big, booming voice you can hear roaring out of Brooklyn into the heart of North America and beyond. The Alexis P. Suter Band are on the rise as accolades pour in and they continue to captivate audiences from town to town.
APSB are a powerful and unique 5 piece ensemble who artfully blend the lines between Blues, Soul and Rock music. Alexis’ voice ranges from a pained passion to explosive and soul bearing. Her band is also on fire manned by the power trio of Bennett, Bennett and Grappone. Jimmy Bennett is a guitar phenomenon with a fierce and ferocious tone. Drummer Ray Grappone and Peter Bennett on bass lay down the groove like a heavy duty Rhythm and Blues machine. Along with the trio is the very talented backing vocalist Vicki Bell.
When the great Bluesman B.B. King first heard Alexis sing, he was visibly impressed and said so after her opening set for him at BB Kings in NYC. Shaking his head in wonder in his characteristic way, he remarked….
“It’s a rare thing to share the stage with great talent like that young lady.”
Alexis and the band have earned similar honors from other well-known musicians and performers, including Dan Aykroyd and Levon Helm of The Band. Suter and her band have been blazing trails and taking their music to festivals and venues both nationally and internationally.
