@Rockfish: Mary Ellen Likens
Sat. Apr 1, 2023 7:30 pm
MARY ELLEN LIKENS AND THE CC ADAMS BAND - Mary Ellen Lykins & The CC Adams Band perform with passion and Mary Ellen is the icing on the cake. There’s no mistaking the voice, Mary Ellen has power and grit that gives you chills. Thwarting the conventional, the band thrives on unique arrangements with roots in the Blues and an eclectic mix of R&B and tasty Rock mixed in. Excitement and energy prevail.
Mary Ellen Liken’s influences started with vocal lessons, musical theater and classical music. She moved to the PNW from Utah in 2010 making it her home and sharing her singing in this vibrant music scene. She’s been performing music in some fashion since inspiration from the Beatles on Ed Sullivan. Mary Ellen gives her all to each and every song adding a passionate voice to the story or the mood. Some have described her sound as reminiscent of Etta James with a dash of Janis Joplin.
An album of all original songs written by CC Adams and Mary Ellen Lykins “Let’s Play With Matches” was released in 2019.
C.A. Clayton, former owner Telluride Jazz Fest: “Mary Ellen Lykins is one of those vocalists who give you goosebumps! … add to that the tight music arrangements and hot saxophone and it’s amazing all around…”
Janice Cleven Gage, Music Director: “The group makes it impossible to stay in your seat…unless you’re mesmerized by the incredible vocals of Mary Ellen Lykins. One of my favorite bands!”
