Bianca the Singer

My singing career started 15 years ago this year, when I was 15 years old.

I use to go with my folks on a Saturday night to watch ” The Boys Nextdoor” aka Barry Burèt and Michael “Buzzy” Bishop singing at the Keg and Coach, at the Tramways in Diepriver. However one night they played in another venue and I went up to Barry and asked him if I could sing “what a feeling – Flashdance”

Now from my recollection, I didnt sound that bad at all. I still remember Barry’s face, and from then on I came back every week, and came up to sing a song. He still jokingly tells everyone I was terrible, but we both know he wouldnt have continued to sing with with me, if I was that terrible. It was for about 2 years that i kept going on Saturday nights to sing with The Boys Nextdoor, when Barry wanted to put together a 4 piece and named it “Paper Moon”, consisting of myself, Barry, Tanya Gore and Paul Q Dirksen.

Its thanks to Barry that I am where I am today with my singing, although I’m not famous, I’m doing what I love. And people really enjoy what we do. I have a HUGE love for the “Golden Oldies” and there is nothing more satisfying to the soul then music and singing.

I cannot describe the feeling of being on stage and singing your heart out. I’ve had a few standing ovasions in my singing career, which is another feeling one cannot describe in words. When you’re singing a song with everything you have inside of you, feeling the emotions, memories that come with certain songs, that’s when the song becomes more than just a song. The people come up to me and say that they can see and feel what I feel when I sing a song, then I know I’ve accomplished my goal as a singer.

Barry and I have had huge support from friends and family alike, when it comes to attending our shows etc. We wouldn’t be where we are today without the love and support from everyone in our lives.
