Joie Bianco & Friends in the Theater

July 18 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Birdland Theater is proud to announce that singer Joie Bianco will be debuting her show “Joie Bianco & Friends” on July 18th at 8:30pm!

Joie will be joined by friends and musicians including Jon Weber, Daniel Glass, Cole Davis, Tyreek McDole, Eric Stern, and Zaq Davis.

Joie prioritizes the beautiful melodies of bebop and lyrics of the American Songbook while bringing a new perspective and interpretation with a classic sound. Highlighting the important history of this music to the modern audience is something that Joie has been promoting from a young age.

“Joie Bianco and Friends” will be a night of music that has influenced Joie. Joie uses sassy uptempos, the blues and heart-wrenching ballads as vehicles to tell stories from a young woman’s perspective on life.

Joie Bianco is a 21 year-old jazz singer from NYC, and is prepping to be a senior jazz vocal performance major at the University of Miami, Frost School of Music. Joie has appeared in many of NYC’s jazz and cabaret clubs, including Jazz at Lincoln Center, Birdland and Carnegie Hall. She is a two-time national finalist in Michael Feinstein’s Songbook Academy and the youngest recipient to win the “Julie Wilson Award” in the Jazz at Lincoln Center New York Cabaret Convention sponsored by the Mabel Mercer Foundation. Joie was the 2019 winner in the jazz vocal category in YoungArts, and the recipient of the 2019 DownBeat Student Music Award for Outstanding Performance.

Her critically acclaimed reviews include Stephen Holden of the New York Times referring to her as a “prodigious discovery” as well as featured stories in Cabaret Scenes Magazine.

She has collaborated and taken lessons with many jazz luminaries such as Marilyn Maye, Jane Monheit, La Tanya Hall, Cyrille Aimee, Cécile McLorin Salvant, Veronica Swift, Lauren Kinhan, and has worked with members of the Manhattan Transfer’s Janis Siegel and the New York Voices’ Peter Eldridge.
