Blue Molly has played its final show as a band.

The award-winning Grand Rapids blues and soul group, led by dynamic singer Molly Bouwsma Schultz, is calling it quits after entertaining enthused audiences on stages big and small since 2007, from the crowded confines of Billy’s Lounge to the sprawling outdoor stage in Ah-Nab-Awen Park for the city’s Fourth of July celebration.

The most recent version of band, which underwent a lineup change over the past year, featured David Raffenaud on keyboards, Daryl Matthews on guitar, Early Tolliver on drums and Mark Hicks on bass. Blue Molly played its final show on Saturday as part of the Gopherwood Concerts series in Cadillac.

Bouwsma Schultz called it “the end of an era,” but stressed that the “amazing musicians” in the band have new, separate projects in the offing.
