Eliza Neals is an award-winning sultry and powerful Blues Rock soul vocalist, recording artist, composer, performer, publisher, and producer who has been compared to some of the greats such as Etta James, Janis Joplin, and Ricki Lee Jones. The ‘Detroit Diva’ is the voice of the ‘21st Century blues’ for a new generation. Eliza Neals covers the musical spectrum with a combination of Blues Rock, psychedelic soul with a twist of jam band and southern Rock covers.
Regina Bonelli’s band delivers an authentic, gritty Blues and Soul sound. For almost two decades, acclaimed bluesmen Michael Hill (guitar) and Kevin Hill (bass guitar) have been putting it down in the Blues world. Chicago’s William McClellan Jr. (drums) along with Mike Griot (bass guitar), Pete Cummings (bass guitar) and David A. Barnes (harmonica) are seasoned musicians and add a big dose of Blues and Funk to the shows. “I feel so much joy performing with my band,” Regina Bonelli said. “I’m truly blessed to work with such gifted, dedicated musicians.”
