For today’s Mix It Or Nix It, Jon and Maria have the Grace Potter and the Nocturnals with “Stars”.
Grace Potter and the Nocturnals formed in 2004 in Waitsfield, Vermont. Featuring lead vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Grace Potter, the band’s original blend of roots, funky blues, soul, and rock]/tag] conjures up a nostalgic sound from the sixties and early seventies. Their debut album, Nothing But The Water, was released in 2005, as was Live Oh Five.
Their 2010 self-titled Grace Potter and the Nocturnals was followed by The Lion The Beast The Beat in 2012.
Leading the charge is 25-year-old Grace Potter whose dynamic vocal ability has drawn comparisons to legends Bonnie Raitt, Aretha Franklin and Janis Joplin and more recently Sheryl Crow and Joan Osborne. Her unique style behind the Hammond B-3 and piano is also gaining widespread recognition. The original lineup included Scott Tournet (guitar/slide guitar), Matthew Burr (drums/percussion), and Bryan Dondero (upright/electric bass). After Dondero parted ways with the Nocturnals in March 2009, they brought in Catherine Popper (bass) and also added Benny Yurco (rhythm guitar).
They have toured with national acts such as Taj Mahal, Trey Anastasio, Dave Matthews Band, The Black Crowes, Derek Trucks, Gov’t Mule, Robert Cray, and Sharon Jones And The Dap Kings.
