Duchess Di or Dynomite Di
are the musical personae of
Diane Cricchio, with her own take on
Risque Blues, Jump n' Swing,
Roots Rock and Roll!
Whether it's the 8-piece big band Duchess Di and the Distractions swinging their way thru the night with three horns, a big fat upright bass, and a piano, OR Dynomite Di and Destruction with their kick-ass Roots Rock n' Roll of Jerry Scaringe on upright bass and harp. OR The Duchess and the Duke's boogie-woogie piano playing Not only will it entertain you , the room will be on fire. Her bands are a who's who of musical talent collaborating on original material as well as interpreting classic favorites. From her early days on the folk scene to the swing and blues influences of Louis Jordan, Annie Ross, Ella Mae Morse, Dinah Washington, Ruth Brown, to more current personal heroines like Imelda May,
Duchess Di has only one intention: to entertain you, body, mind, and soul.
You'll enjoy hearing all these influences come together in her own unique delivery.
Now living and working in Westchester County (a suburb of New York City), She and her bands are available for
booking anywhere there is a need for music.
