About the Artists

Joanna Connor & The Wrecking Crew 23'

Four weeks after moving to Chicago, a 22-year-old Joanna Connor approached blues giant Lonnie Brooks at a club on the North Side. That encounter kicked off her 35-year career as one of the most powerful women in Chicago blues.

“It was my university. I went out every night of the week. Within a month I had my first gig with the legendary Johnny Littlejohn. A few weeks later I became a part of Dion Payton and the 43rd St Blues band," said Joanna Connor.

Joanna went on to form her own band in 1988 with weekly appearances at the Kingston Mines in Chicago. Her formidable guitar playing, and distinctive soul-churning vocal ability caught the attention of Blind Pig Records, who released her debut album “Believe It” in 1990. Her newest album released on June 9 th, 2023.

Jennifer Lyn & the Groove Revival

Mixing classic rock undertones, soulful vocals, the songwriting vibe of the 70s, wanderlust, and plenty of reverb-drenched guitar solos with dual guitar moments, her music is reminiscent of 60s and 70s vibe music melted into a pot of contemporary Blues-Rock.

Jennifer Lyn & The Groove Revival have been nominated for Four Independent Blues Music Awards and her latest project, titled Gypsy Soul was released April 14, 2023. Gypsy Soul features music steeped in the Blues and is a perfect Blues-based pairing as a follow-up to the band’s Independent Blues Music Award nominated for “Best Blues Rock Album”.
