The full band, Christie Lenée and the Funkgrass Groove, blends poetic lyrics and expressive dance movement with high-energy solos and breakdown grooves. Imagine a melding of Jimi Hendrix's guitar, vocals reminiscent of Joni Mitchell, and the energy and lyrical genius of Ani Difranco partnered with a group of virtuosic jazz musicians. Souls shine and inspiration arises...hands paint rainbows of sound... and songs are colored with passion in waves of harmonic energy.
