Maria & The Balance

The "wall of sound" lives and breathes with this 9 piece

Fondly known as, The Dudette, Maria of "Maria & The Balance" has been playing music since the age of 4 and professionally since age 14. She has a degree in Guitar Performance from Kent State University where she was also in the Jazz Band, Women's Chorus, and Barbershop Quartet. Maria also studied at the Musician's Institute in Los Angeles.

A staple in the Northeast Ohio music scene for many years, Maria has been a bassist, guitarist, trombonist, and vocalist with such groups as Aquarius Rising, the Swizzle Stick Band, Ragin' Kane and One Loudah. Connections is her first solo effort.

The Balance, although newer as a group, is full of northeast Ohio musicians that have been playing together and individually in local and national acts for anywhere between 5-25 years. Each member brings their years of education, training, and experience to make a wall of sound that is as professional as it is undeniably danceable! We're that rock and roll you can dance to with all the fun a funky horn section brings to the party!
