“Ms Marci (aka Marci Chevian-Hooper), is the driving diva behind the Lovesick Hounds. She’s a commanding presence on stage as she grasps the audience with her musical sleight of hand from the first note she plays on her lipstick-red bass. Her talent gives her a range of styles – from R&B to rock and roll; jazz to swing – all with equal skill. Chevian-Hooper has been a winner in the preliminary Connecticut Blues Challenge contests, as well as sharing the stage with some of contemporary music greats like Muddy Waters, Luther Guitar ‘Junior’ Johnson, Pinetop Perkins, Willie ‘Big Eyes’ Smith, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley and B.B. King.”
