Her first CD, "All That I've Got I Gave to Music," was recorded live at the Underground Wonder Bar. It's a rolling celebration of joy and survival. Sounds of her piano dance, her voice scats, moans and wails, tender memories rise from a deep sleep and laughter sparkles. On this recording, she takes the beloved songs of our past and combines them with her contemporary arrangements. On the sensual but playful "Fever," Lonie becomes the mistress, sliding in and out of madness, while on the beautifully tortured " Vincent," she drops her voice to a soft lullaby and paints a sad, comfortable landscape on the piano. But it is on her roaring masterpiece, " Me And Bobbie McGee," where all the best in Lonie shines-- the piano rumbles as she sings through a wicked smile that can be heard over the glorious musical riot.

In 1989, Walker opened the famed Underground Wonder Bar. Located at 10 E. Walton in Chicago, the Underground Wonder Bar is devoted to keeping live entertainment raging till 4 a.m. every night, 5 on Saturdays. The next best thing to catching Lonie Walker and Big Bad Ass Company Band live at The Underground Wonder Bar is to pick up her latest CD release "Change Is Good" or any of her other CD's right here at the Wonder "Store" or the Wonder Bar!
