The Lisa Bouchelle Rock Band
“A Star of the future… and judging from the crowd at this show, the future is now!” So wrote a reviewer from the Aquarian Weekly, the leading mid-Atlantic region entertainment paper, after a performance by Lisa Bouchelle.
Lisa has dueted with Jon Bon Jovi and John Popper, and sung backup for Bruce Springsteen, Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty, Cyndi Lauper, and Daryl Hall, among others. She has done national tours with Meat Loaf, Blues Traveler, Ted Nugent, America, and The Dusk Ray Troubadours. and opened for Bryan Adams, Kansas, Train, John Waite, Joan Jett, David Bromberg, Nancy Sinatra, Ingrid Michaelson, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Hot Tuna, Southside Johnny & The Jukes, Richard Marx, Sophie B. Hawkins, Gary U.S. Bonds, Nils Lofgren, Dar Williams, The Wailers, and members of Phish and the Jerry Garcia Band, among others. She has appeared on NBC, ABC, CBS, Fox, ESPN, the Tennis Channel; Comcast shows “Backstage” and “One On One With Steve Adubato,” the “Jersey Guys” Radio show on New Jersey’s 101.5, the morning show on New York’s WPLJ, and NPR (National Public Radio).
Other credits include being invited to perform in Japan, a duet with James LeBrie, the singer of Dream Theater on his solo release, and an appearance on the hit TV show “Gossip Girls.”
Lisa also hosts “Rock Star Kitchen,” which airs weekly on The Comcast Network and in syndication throughout the US. As host of the show, she has talked music and sung with Foreigner, Eddie Money, Lita Ford, Theory Of A Deadman, John Popper, Bowling For Soup, Emerson Hart of Tonic, Candlebox, Chubby Checker, Gary US Bonds, Cy Curnin of The Fixx, Night Ranger, Peter Mayer of Jimmy Buffett’s Corral Reefer Band, and Corey Glover of Living Colour.
Lisa first started singing at a young age, and sang non-stop… because although her parents loved her deeply, the only time they would stop their constant arguing was when little Lisa sang. Now, after losing her father to complications from a heart operation, and her mother to alcoholism, she still finds refuge in her music.
And that music has kept her going, whether it be going on tour by driving herself thousands of miles around the country in her car, or flying to Japan to perform for Japanese fans. Her style has been compared to Sheryl Crow, Jewel, and Jason Mraz, but what sets her music apart is an edge reminiscent of classic artists such as Neil Young and Tom Petty.
