“Girls Got The Blues” is an All-Star, female blues band. This project was realized in 2012 by Lara Price. Lara came across an article that revealed having "girl time" is good for your health! The music business is a male dominated industry.Lara wanted to find other women in the business, and break down stereo types that women can't play or work together. An all female band is nothing new, but to Lara Price the experince to play with all women was irresitable. It was an opportunity for "ultimate girl time"!
When these musicians aren’t busy touring with international headliners, teaching music, or tending to their own projects, they come together to produce a magical on stage journey.
