The Big Lis Gumbo Band is an electric blues band fronted by Iria “Big” Lis, a singer born in A Coruña in 1978.Iria defines herself as a self-taught screamer with some good friends. The Gumbo Band is formed around her, in which all the different flavours of blues are found: Texas, Chicago, California…. and the cocktail of sound that is New Orleans blues. Under the musical direction of Rubén "Sunny Boy" Barros Deschamps (who’s career marks him out as one of Galicia’s most versatile guitarrists) The Big Lis Gumbo Band recorded their first disc “ THE BAIT OF BLUES” at Bonham Studios in 2014.All the work of two years of gigging under the name of Big Lis and her Rodmen is represented in this disc.The Gumbo band is completed by a very experienced Samuel Pérez (drums) and the young Fernando Fraga (bass), who make up a rhythm section fished in high seas with the bait of blues. The fifth member if the quintet is Ramón Figueira "Figui", a harmonica player who stands out in the current Galician scene.Amongst their concerts it is worth noting their appearance in the Pantín Classic Galicia Pro 2014 (the classification phase of the international ASP championship), and the Galician festivals; Blues no Sil 2013, Lanzós, and Feito a Man 2014.
