Lizzi Neal Band takes decades of combined experience and love of all genres to create a paralyzing Contemporary Blues sound. Influenced at an early age by Blues, Soul and Jazz, power house Lizzi Neal displays mad ranging vocals and the ability to Co-write songs with Dave Neal that range from a witty, upbeat jazzy number, to a sultry heart wrenching soul song. Dave Neal on guitar plays melodic rhythm mixed with smokin leads. On the bottom is Alan Shupp on bass and John Brown on Drums. Alan's clean sound on bass displays his amazing artistry, while John holds the whole band together with a solid funky beat. In 2017 Steve Bunton joined and has helped really take their sound to another new place, playing a mixture from piano to organ, and even awesome horn section sounds. Regionally touring in the last several years, winning consecutive Blues awards and state recognition for their hard work, has them on the brink of success. Their first full length release won album of the year in Northern Illinois. Currently working on their next album due to be released in 2017, Lizzi Neal Band looks forward too many years of continued success and making new fans.
