Kathleen Walters has been captivating audiences in and around Lansing since the formation of her first band, Blues Xpress, in the late 90s. Later, as featured vocalist for Frog & the Beeftones, Kathleen opened for national bands including Mark Hummel, and Rod Piazza and The Mighty Flyers. Kathleen has shared the stage with national blues artists Larry McCray, Memphis mainstay The Daddy Mack Blues Band, and San Francisco’s Tommy Castro Band. In 2006, after years of sitting in with other bands and watching her own songs gather dust, Kathleen formed The Blues Junkies. The Blues Junkies quickly became a hometown favorite, playing clubs and festivals throughout the Mid-Michigan area, as well as taking 2nd place in the Capital Area Blues Society Blues Brawl and People’s Choice Award.

She now dazzles audiences with Kathleen and The Bridge Street Band, and they are known for mixing it up, never playing the same show twice. If you love the blues, you’ll love this band! Like a sweet & spicy BBQ, their unique mix of traditional and contemporary blues, sultry ballads, soul, swing and rock will make you put on your dancin’ shoes and keep you coming back for more!
