| The heart
and soul of Lefty Lucy© is Lucy Malia and Nick
DiBlasio. Lucy and Nick collaborate to write their
original songs that they have recorded. Their dynamic performances on stage have captivated
thousands. Their friendly, approachable personalities
off stage have endeared thousands as well.
Lefty Lucy© is a professional band that performs
as a full five-piece band. They perform popular
cover songs as well as many original songs. Lefty Lucy has played all over the world,
including Las Vegas, Bermuda, Key West, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto
Rico, the Panama Canal, Cabo San Lucas, Lake
Tahoe, Colorado, Nashville, Boston, Philadelphia,
New Jersey, and many privately owned Motor and
Sailing Yachts. Lefty Lucy continues their
tour and spends most of their time between Colorado
and New Jersey, and perform nightly in both
locations. Colorado in the winter as the house band
for a major Ski Resort and various locations in New
Jersey in the Summer, including Atlantic City.
Lefty Lucy© started their Las Vegas residency in April
2006 playing for Harrah's Casino at the world famous
Toby Keith's 'I Love this Bar and Grill' and 'The
Piano Bar.' The five-piece band played a great
variety of New Country music mixed with some rock at
Toby's. Toby himself even joined Lefty Lucy
many times for renditions of "I Love this Bar," and
"Get Drunk and Be Somebody," "Whiskey Girl,"
and many others. After much success at both
clubs, Lefty Lucy has since moved venues from 'The
Piano Bar' to 'The Extra Lounge' at Planet Hollywood
Hotel and Casino. They
play more of a rock oriented show showcasing
favorites from the 70's onward. Rounding out
their schedule Lefty Lucy also performs selected
dates at Jimmy Buffett's 'Margaritaville' in
the Flamingo hotel. Their many years living
and performing in Bermuda have been a great precursor
to Jimmy Buffett's style.
Lead Vocals, Keyboards, Guitar, Harmonica
Lucy has been singing and playing the piano since she
was a very young child. She performed the
National Anthem at a Philadelphia Phillies MLB game
in Veteran's Stadium. She also won the honors
to perform the same song at her University
graduation. Lucy did some recording in
Nashville and while there, entered a singing
competition. After being named the winner, she
had the honors of performing her original songs at
the Country Music Hall of Fame. Later that
evening she shared the stage with 'Nashville Star'
finalist, Miranda Lambert, at
the Wild Horse Saloon and sang for a packed house.
While working with A & M Records in Philadelphia, she
met Sheryl Crow, saw her concert and was immediately
blown away by Sheryl's ability to master so many
instruments. So inspired by Sheryl's
performance, Lucy soon taught herself to play the
guitar and harmonica. After joining up with Nick DiBlasio, the two formed
Lefty Lucy in 1996 and started writing songs together and
playing in Philadelphia. They soon began a
whirlwind tour that has taken them to many exotic
places including: Bermuda, the Las Vegas Strip, St.
Thomas, Puerto Rico, Mexico, California, Colorado,
Boston, New Jersey, and many privately owned motor
Lucy has performed with many of Rock and Country's
finest including Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert, Michael Anthony (bass
player for Van Halen), Neal Schon (lead guitar for
Journey), Jeff Scott Soto (performed
lead vocal tracks for movie, "Rock Star," now lead
singer for Journey), Virgil Dinati (formerly drummer
for Steve Vai, now Soul Sirkus), David Lauser
(drummer for Sammy Hagar), Vic Johnson (guitar for
Sammy Hagar), Marco Mendoza (formerly bass for White
Snake, now Soul Sirkus), John Eddie, Jeff
Watson (guitar player for Night Ranger) and others.
Rhythm Guitar, Lead Vocals
Nick has been playing the guitar since he was six.
He was fortunate to grow up in a musical family and
honed his skills. With a background in musical
theatre, Nick's showmanship flourished when he
performed in Bermuda. He teamed up with Lucy and
they wrote and recorded two CD's of original music.
Lucy and Nick's chemistry on stage is undeniable and
their friendly and warm personalities have made them
many friends around the globe.

nominated James P. Gallagher,
an accomplished producer whose clients include:
Stevie Wonder, Patti LaBelle, the Sound of Philadelphia
and many more. His work has landed him on numerous

by Lucy’s voice and songwriting ability. After
Gallagher heard Lefty Lucy©, he invited them
into the studio to record their original songs.
