Vocalist Michelle Walker and Powerhouse Jazz Blues Fusion band OPIUS BLISS perform live at CLUB BONAFIDE for Cinco De Mayo on Friday May 5, 2017 with special guests guitarist Chris Bergson and drummer Aaron Comess of famed rock group The Spin Doctors
(Published: April 27, 2017)

Press Release

New York, NY, April 26, 2017: OPIUS BLISS, the powerful New York City based blues and jazz rooted group, perform at Club Bonafide in New York City, teaming up with fellow fusion artist's blues guitarist Chris Bergson and Aaron Comess, the famed drummer from the acclaimed rock band The Spin Doctors. The concert will be held on Cinco De Mayo, Friday May 5, 2017 9:30pm as the main headliner for the night.

In the short time since forming, the members of the Opius Bliss have been growing an impressive fan base in their hometown and spreading their love for American Rooted music performing concerts at clubs and festivals with their eclectic blend of jazz and blues to soul, rock and funk. Boston Globe calls them "....a stunning fusion of talent....". They are an electrifying band on the rise. They stretch with wide appeal getting comparison's to Tedeschi Trucks band, Gov't Mule, Bonnie Raitt, Cassandra Wilson and Alabama Shakes. Opius Bliss dives into a musical space that is uniquely their own. The Washington Post says of lead vocalist Michelle Walker, "....she has a soul-comforting allure...." With Walker's deep, dark and rich tone, the band is spell bounding.

Guitarist Chris Bergson stands out from the large pack of blues guitarists currently on the scene because of his long background as an accompanying jazz guitarist. Bergson's original songs tap into new themes and fresh veins in the blues mine, and his live shows are an artful mix of blues, Americana, jazz, and blues-rock. Given his long background as a sideman jazz guitarist, when Bergson decided he wanted to pursue blues music for a living, it stands to reason his sound would reflect that.

Drummer Aaron Comess, a founding member of the Grammy-nominated, 10-million-plus album selling band Spin Doctors, has played on, written on and/or produced over 100 albums with an acclaimed and diverse roster of artists including Joan Osborne, Bilal, Rachael Yamagata, New York Electric Piano, Isaac Hayes, Marc Cohen and Chris Whitley. Comess' talent was evident early on in his diverse career with Downbeat magazine awarding him Outstanding Jazz Musician two consecutive years. He attended both Berklee College of Music and The New School.

You can catch Opius Bliss featuring special guests Chris Bergson and Aaron Comess live in concert on Friday May 5, 2017 9:30 PM at the brand-new world music venue CLUB BONAFIDE in Mid-town Manhattan, New York, NY.
