From Seattle to Paris Wendy spreads the gospel of Chicago
based blues piano and boogie woogie. She’s well steeped in
the stylings of Otis Spann, Memphis Slim, Sunnyland Slim and
Albert Ammons - the greats of boogie and blues, and honed
her skills working with contemporary artists Steve Freund,
Otis Rush and the late Hank Ballard who’s love of the blues
showed in all of his rock classics.
Wendy has appeared with Charlie Musselwhite, Otis Rush,
and Etta James and has been featured at Berkeley’s historic
venue, Freight and Salvage. She performed at the Cincinnati
Blues Fest at the internationally acclaimed Arches Piano
stage, headed to Boston with Hank Ballard and the
Midnighters for a performance at the Boston Symphony Hall
and played before a sold out audience at the San Diego
Museum of Art with Hadda Brooks in what proved to be one of
Hadda’s last shows. Wendy has performed at many major
festivals including Peer in Belgium, San Francisco Blues
Fest, and Monterey Blues, and Jazz Fests.
Solo or with her band Wendy puts on a high energy show.
