Feeling a bit camera shy


Lady Sunshine was born to sing the blues. Born on a plantation near the Mississippi Delta in Arkansas, Lady Sunshine grew up singing Gospel music as a little girl and is definitely the 'Real Deal!' Sunshine is the consumate entertainer and that deep soulful southern hunger that drives her is apparent both on and off the stage through her heartfelt originals and down-to-earth demeanor. She moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan in 1975 and began performing professionally in genres such as Blues, R&B, Gospel, Soul and Jazz. Although Sunshine lives in the heartland of the University of Michigan Wolverines, the chants of 'Let's go BLUE!' take on a whole different meaning for her....

The rhythm section of Rick Humesky, Enrique Pardo and Jose Aranda is a rock steady groove machine with such a deep pocket that no matter what style you ask for, be it Blues, Funk, R&B, Soul, Rock, Jazz or Latin you'll get a groove that is authentic, precise and pumpin'.

The 'Xsatiable Horns' are comprised of Patricio Padilla, David Maki II and Ken Ferry. These cats are powerful, air-TIGHT, horn phenoms accustomed to playing as a compact and symbiotic unit in addition to being virtuostic soloists in their own right. Their 'phat' sound has been described as a fusion of the Memphis Horns, James Brown Horns and Tower of Power Horns all rolled into one unique and 'Xsatiable' package.

Two time Detroit Music Awards nominee Lady Sunshine & The X Band was formed in 1994 and has been causing quite a stir since then. The STAX-VOLT legacy is definitely alive and kickin' with these players! This group is a product of the 'Motor City' and is a reflection of the very essence of Detroit - emotion, fire, pride and SOUL. The LSX Band has performed across the state of Michigan and have opened for Blues/R&B legends like Koko Taylor, Bobby Rush, Little Milton, Eddie Kirkland, Roomful of Blues, War et al. to rave reviews. LSX just recently placed 3rd out of 86 bands at the Memphis Blues Foundation International Blues Challenge on February 5th, 2005.
