LIVE MUSIC: Lola Blu and the Lola Blu Band

Lola Blu is an up and coming "Rockin' Y'allternative Country" local singer/songwriter performing both original songs as well as popular country and alternative hit songs! While you may remember Lola Blu as a former Maiden of Merch here at Kegel H-D, she has since made quite a name for herself in the last year or so having played over 100 shows, opening for Walker Montgomery, Tanner Usrey and Trey Lewis, performing at the Illinois State Fair, Byronfest as well as at Honky Tonk Central, Tootsies, and Kid Rocks all in Nashville and she was even nominated as Vocalist of the Year for the Josie Music Awards at the Grand Ole Opry. You can also catch the Lola Blu Band this summer at this Rockton's Old Settlers Days in June.
