Sarah and The Tall Boys
Sarah and The Tall Boys
"From the City that brought you the Blues Brothers, Second City Theater, Chicago Hot Dogs, Cracker Jacks, the Sears Tower,  Navy Pier, and Lolapalooza now comes this fantastic bluesy country band, Sarah and The Tall Boys! Sarah Potenza may not be the reincarnated ghost of Janice Joplin, but when I closed my eyes and heard that powerful voice, well you can't prove it by me!"  Steven Johnson, promoter, Comfy Couch Concerts


About Sarah & the Tall Boys

http://www.sarahpotenza.com

Sarah Potenza, born in 1980 in Providence, Rhode Island, spent much of her youth fascinated with the voices of Blues & Country musicians like Bonnie Raitt, Etta James, and Greg Allman.

In the late 90's Sarah attended Rhode Island College for a BA in Music. There, she studied Musical Theatre, Violin and Vocal Performance. It was not until 2002 that Potenza began to perform her own music. As a solo act she began honing her skills at a local bar called "The Custom House Tavern" In 2003, Sarah moved to Chicago to persue her love of blues music. Potenza performed as a solo artist at some of Chicago's premiere venues such as House of Blues, The Metro, and the Double Door. In 2005 she met fellow musician Dan Orduff and together they began to form "The Sarah Potenza Band". In 2006 Sarah's original song The Eastside, was accepted on to Acoustic Chicago, a compilation of the cities top artists. Since the release of Acoustic Chicago in 2007, Potenza has been putting together a new band, Sarah & the Tall Boys. The band includes her long time guitar player, Dan Orduff, her husband, Ian Crossman, and world-class blues drummer, David Sims. In 2008 Sarah & the Tall Boys recorded their first album, Shiny & New. It is a self-released collection of original Americana. In 2008 the group has performed at The Taste of Chicago, Old Town School's Folk & Roots Festival, Estrojam, and The Glenwood Arts Fest. Most Saturday nights you can catch Sarah & the Tall Boys at The Underground Wonder Bar in downtown Chicago.
