Mississippi Heat is one of the most talented, creative, and hard-working blues bands playing today. For 20 years, the band, led by harpist Pierre Lacocque, has spread its “traditional with a twist” blues sound around the world with ten album releases and countless nights playing live on stage.
There’s no doubt they are one of the best Chicago Blues Bands touring today.
And they’ve got the accolades to prove it. They received the Best Blues Band of the Year award from Blues Blast Magazine 2015.

Mississippi Heat describes its musical style as having roots in the golden era of Chicago blues in the 1950s. Lacocque cites Muddy Waters, Jimmy Rogers, Howlin’ Wolf, Jimmy Reed, Big Walter Horton, Little Walter, Sonny Boy Williamson I, Sonny Boy Williamson II and Junior Wells as influences.
The band has toured in the United States, Canada, and Europe, with occasional performances in South America and North Africa.
