Grace Potter and the Nocturnals is a Vermont-based band that blends funky blues, soul and rock from the 60s and early 70s. 

Grace Potter and the Nocturnals are like a modern-day version of Tina Turner stroking the microphone in a spangled mini-dress while fronting the Rolling Stones circa Sticky Fingers. The proof is there for all to hear on the band’s third album for Hollywood Records, hitting this spring, and marks an artistic breakthrough for a vital young band caught in the act of fulfilling its immense promise. Little wonder that Grace and her cohorts have chosen to title it, directly and emphatically, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals.

The band released their fourth studio recording, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, on June 8, 2010. The album peaked at #6 on iTunes Top 100 album and #2 on iTunes Rock Albums Chart. The opening track, "Paris (Ooh La La)", and iTunes bonus track "Fooling Myself" was in the Top 40 and Top 100, respectively, on iTunes Rock Songs Chart. (source: Wikipedia)
