Lisa Fischer and Grand Baton will take the state at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center’s Castle Theater on Thursday, March 24, 2016, beginning at 7:30 p.m.

Fischer is stepping into the spotlight after four decades of singing background for icons like the Rolling Stones, Tina Turner, Chaka Khan and Nine Inch Nails.

Fischer is finally offering her own humble, heartfelt song, accompanied by her inventive new band, Grand Baton.

Fischer was a Marvellete when she first auditioned for Luther Vandross, who was to become her employer, her mentor and her champion.

She was thrust into the spotlight with her memorable appearance in the 2013 Oscar-winning documentary, Twenty Feet from Stardom.

Fischer has found ideal coconspirators in Grand Baton. The band’s organic fusion of African, Middle Eastern and Caribbean rhythms, psychedelic soul, and progressive rock awakens and ignites her flexibility and freedom of expression.
