The Philadelphia Blues Messengers grew out of monthly blues jams at The Mermaid Inn in Northwest Philly, and a serendipitous encounter in Center City for blues harpist Larry Hambrecht. Larry was a part of the blues scene in New York and over lunch Paul Olivier mentioned that he needed a band. And Larry said he had a great blues band, even though at the time he only dreamed of one. With necessity breeding invention, Larry turned to his Mermaid Inn jam buddies for a pickup blues band. It is a tribute to the abundance and depth of musicianship in Philadelphia that he came up with a pickup band of veterans – Lisa Chavous & The Philadelphia Blues Messenger – from various genres that would be the envy of any city anywhere.
This boiling pot of diversity, that is uniquely Philadelphian, has spawned a repertoire steaming with classic electric blues, R&B, and jazz-funk that wanders into avant garde territory. And to bring their music full circle, for their first album, “Blues for Sale,” the Blues Messengers pulled in South African drummer and singer Mogauwane Mahloele to expand into Afro and world music.
