Tell Mama is the band aka for longtime blues singer Laura Jane Willcock, who belts out tunes in a rock 'n' roll style akin to Janis Joplin. She also DJs and both hosts and performs at karaoke events, and sometimes performs with boogie-woogie queen Sue Palmer, as well as singing with local bands Willcock, Z-Bopp!, and others. She says her proudest achievement has been "Singing our national anthem for the Detroit Redwings. Twice."
Willcock has also been a member of the Tighten Ups, and she debuted a new group called ThunderLux in 2015.
