Lady Sunshine was born to sing the blues. Born on a plantation near the Mississippi Delta in West Helena Arkansas, Lady Sunshine grew up singing gospel music as a little girl and is definitely the 'real deal'! Sunshine is the consummate 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 & 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.

These cats are powerful, air-tight, horn phenoms, accustomed to playing as a compact and symbiotic unit in addition to being virtuosic 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 rolled into one unique and Xsatiable package.
