Band founder and lead singer, Gina Coleman, entered the music scene in the early 90’s

as the lead singer of the folk/rock group Cole-Connection. It wasn’t until 1999 when she

played a gospel singer in the Williamstown Theatre Festival production of A Raisin In The

Sun that she was steered down the path of blues. The lead actor in the production,

Ruben Santiago-Hudson, told Coleman that he felt her... voice was well suited to sing

classic blues. This sentiment was echoed by actor/singer, Mandy Patinkin, who sought

her out after seeing the opening performance of the production. After actress Gwyneth

Paltrow commented on her performance, Coleman knew a musical shift was imminent.

Guitarist Jason Webster and bassist Bill Patriquin from Cole-Connection were on board

and thus began Misty Blues.


With a deficit of blues music in the Berkshires at the time, they felt the musical change

would be well received. Misty Blues pays homage to the older blues made popular by

the bold and brassy women of its time, while still paying respect to classic male artists of

the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s. The band hasn’t completely abandoned their musical roots; they

have been known to perform classic rock and folk tunes infused with a healthy dose of

the blues. Over the years, Misty Blues has produced ten albums. Today the core

members includes Gina Coleman, Seth Fleischmann, Bill Patriquin, Ben Kohn, Rob Tatten

and Aaron Dean.
