"My Reunion Blues gig bags are more reliable and easier to travel with than my old road cases. I don’t even use my old hard shell cases anymore. That's how safe my reunion blues gig bags are."

Malone performs solo, duo, and with a 4 piece band in arena’s, theaters, festivals, clubs, cruise ships, colleges, and even living rooms. Her shows are upbeat, personable, “raucous and jubilant” (Rolling Stone). She can make the biggest arena seem cozy as a campfire and an intimate venue feel like the center of the universe.
