The Gand Band w/Whitney Shay

“This woman is a powerhouse, a freight-train, a force of nature, and just about any other metaphor for strength that you could dream up. Whitney Shay’s soul doesn’t just shine through; it sparkles.”

– Madi Toman, ImperfectFifth.com

Winner of 5 San Diego Music Awards (2 for Best Blues Artist, 2 for Best Blues Album, and one for Artist of The Year), and a San Diego CityBeat Magazine “Best Of” Award, Whitney Shay is one #busylittlesinger. With sparkly dresses, fiery tresses, and a talent rivaled only by her unstoppable hustle, Whitney Shay has toured extensively throughout Europe and South America, and was nominated for a national Blues Music Award in 2019.

Shay’s latest release on Ruf Records Stand Up! debuted at #1 on the Billboard Blues charts and also reached #1 on the Roots Music Report. Shay has received high praise from music critics calling the singer “a future blues icon” (Blues Matters!), “one of the next best things in soul music” (Blues and Rhythm Magazine), and “the epitome of a rising star” (Elmore Magazine). Shay’s tracks have been placed in TV/film, including shows on NBC, Fox, HBO, Bravo, BET, Hulu, and Tyler Perry’s A Madea Family Funeral.

Whether in studio, on screen, or stage, Whitney Shay’s electric energy, soulful style, and powerhouse pipes keep listeners connected and coming back for more.

Winner of the CV Independent’s Best Local Band for three years running, this dynamic husband and wife team bring their Chicago sound to the desert.

Veteran bluesman Gary Gand handles the six strings, driving the band, channeling a bit of Freddie King, Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck rolled into one. Keyboardist Joan Gand grooves on classic Hammond B-3 style organ and blues piano with inspiration from Booker T, Ray Charles, and Otis Spann, all while her left hand is laying down the bass.

Throughout this series of 3 concerts, special guests will join the Gand Band including top notch performers from both Chicago and San Diego.

The Gand Band appears in the new film,”My Name is Lopez” – a documentary about 60s celebrity vocalist/actor Trini Lopez. Trini was a frequent guest performer until his death in 2020.
