JUDY SINGS THE BLUES
Funky, Soulful, Modern Blues
Lead vocalist and percussionist for Judy Sings the Blues, Judy Mangini has tremendously, powerful, wide range vocals! She sings with passion, strength and feeling that you not only hear the story, you feel it too.
Judy has been singing in area bands since she was 16, but truly loves and enjoys singing the Blues,
and she has been writing her own songs since her early teens.
Eric Zoeckler is the lead guitar player. He grew up in the Washington D.C. music scene of the 80s learning his chops from area legends. Playing the D.C. clubs as a teenager, Eric sharpened his chops in blues and rockabilly and was heavily influenced by the masters of the blues like BB King, Albert Collins and John Lee Hooker.
Carl Thompson, bass player, is affectionately known as “Smiley” to those that know him and see him on stage.
He has been playing in area bands for over forty years.
Alfonzo “Terry” Lee is the drummer and has been drumming for over 20 years and has played in many area bands
adding his personal dynamics, style, funk and skill to the mix.
Together, for the band, playing the blues is not just playing music. It is a feeling from deep within your soul capturing the moments in life that make you or break you and telling a story people can relate to. Sharing your emotions with complete strangers and knowing they relate… they’ve been there too… That is what they do. That is who they are.

of funk thrown in for good measure, you will want to check out this album
ROOTSTIME (Belgium) - Eric Schuurmans
Judy Mangini amazes me positively with her first release ‘Born a Sinner’. With her voice, her songwriting
and her contemporary approach to the blues, she scores on several levels. We look forward to more!
