Biography

Internationally renowned Louisiana-bred artist, Margie Evans is a legendary entertainer, businesswoman, spokeswoman and historian. As the only African American President of the civics-oriented 5-4 Optimist Club of Los Angeles, she taught music history, respect for law, educational achievement, endless perseverance and integrity to local schoolchildren and citizens. These are the tools of community building that springboarded the conception of L. A. Music Week. Executive Director Margie Evans is well established as a multi-talented lyricist, classy multi-genre entertainer, blues historian, community leader and motivational speaker. She represents the Blues Genre with an uncategorical poise, dignity and trademark robustly effervescent, jovial sophistication, unlike the typical blues stereotypes. She shares, “I’ve been around a long time and I’ve really paid my dues.”

A woman full of love, ideas and understanding of her culture, Margie’s love for music is overwhelming! This is due to her background, for she arrived in Los Angeles in 1952 to stay which allowed Evans some breaks in the entertainment business. She performed with the Ron Marshall Orchestra at the Tikis in Monterey Park, California. In 1969, Margie was introduced to the famous Johnny Otis by Hector Revere and became internationally known by touring Far East Asia with the Johnny Otis Show. With an extensive discography, Evans has also served as both producer and co-producer of many records, including six records for Bobby “Blue” Bland for Monk Higgins Productions. The multi- talented artist has performed with many great entertainers: B.B. King, Joe Turner, Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson, Albert King, Pee Wee Crayton and Willie Dixon, among countless others.
