Its another day and time 

I should name this blog “Living the day by day life” I have to stay encouraged every day, and not give up. You who read my blog must'n either.  I know its hard but, its like an algebra equation.  LIfe has many different turns before you get the answer.  However, being alive and blessed is what I look forward to, and thank God for. I expect the postive to every negitive. I actually am gettimg  to know myself.  Hi Bianca! you are alright.  I didnt know you were that strong. My Uncle used to say" I am doing time and time is life"

Love Lady Bianca

Hello folks, looks like the end of Spring and the beginning of Summer should be successful.  I was invited to come and sing with the Stinkfoot  15 Piece Orchestra on June 24 2022. It will be held in Oakland CA. at the "New Parish" Theater.  I am really excited about this.  

I know Covid is still looming but I hope you will  come out and visit with us at the places we will be performing.  Please wear you mask and keep us and yourselves safe.

Lady Bianca has toured the country with her trio and was a featured solo vocalist and pianist in the International Boogie-Woogie Festival in Lugano, Switzerland.  In 2015, Lady Bianca represented the Golden Gate Blues Society in Memphis as a contestant in the International Blues Challenge, competing in the solo/duo category.  In 2017, Lady Bianca sang Oh, Freedom in the Roots Award-winning documentary Gina’s Journey: The Search for William Grimes and was the featured narrative voice in the Oakland-based documentary Evolution of the Blues.   Lady Bianca has also sailed the Caribbean seas on the legendary Blues Cruise as a featured performer in the Mitch Woods Billboard Lounge aboard ship.   

She has performed, recorded and toured the world with Frank Zappa, Sly Stone, Van Morrison, John Lee Hooker and Hall of Fame legends Bobby Bland, Willie Dixon, Etta James, Curtis Mayfield, Koko Taylor, Joe Louis Walker and dozens more as a featured opening act, vocal arranger and record producer.  Lady Bianca continues to record, produce and release amazing music.
