About us

Chicago Blues Mamas is part of an initiative founded by Lynn Orman Weiss of Orman Music Group in association with Fran Allen-Leake of LJet Productions called The Chicago Blues Mamas: a collective of Blues Royalty and Divas which include Deitra Farr, Shirley King, Sharon Lewis, Shirley Johnson, Katherine Davis, Nellie Tiger Travis, Liz Mandeville, Ellen Miller, Peaches Staten and Holle Thee Maxwell. These divas collectively and individually are role models for women, standing up for women’s issues and rights, as well as mentors to young musicians and music professionals.  On election night 2012, as the nation re-elected President Obama, The Chicago Blues Mamas for Obama stormed the stage at one of the darling boutique theaters on Chicago’s north side -The Mayne Stage – and packed the sold-out house to the rafters. WGN television, The Huffington Post, Chicago Music Magazine and Star Planet Television chose Chicago Blues Mamas for Obama as the must see concert in Chicago on election night.
