Margie Perez (vocalist)

Lobby Atrium of The Ogden Museum of Southern Art's Stephen Goldring Hall

Margie Perez is a dynamic and vivacious performer specializing in a versatile blend of Blues, Pop, New Orleans Funk, and Latin music. Her infectious tune "Ooh Baby La La" won First place in the Pop category of the Songwriter's Association of Washington's 14th Annual Mid-Atlantic Song contest. She proudly makes New Orleans her home now, and has put together a great band, The Groovy Blues, with whom she performs at clubs, festivals, and parties. They performed at Carnival Latina in 2007, and at the 2007 and 2008 Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo Festivals. As well as singing backup for the powerful blues diva Marva Wright, New Orleans music legend Allen Toussaint invited her to sing backup for him at the 2007 New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. Margie also performed at JazzFest 2007 as a member of the Afro-Cuban percussion ensemble Michael Skinkus and Moyuba. You can hear her on the latest CD by the Crescent City All-Stars featuring New Orleans trumpeter James Andrews. She currently sings lead for the Psychedelic Rock Party band, the Ibervillians, and she sings backup for R&B singer Josephine Maria.
