Heading the Laura Ivancie Band is its namesake, Laura Ivancie. Laura has performed at the Waterfront Blues Festival in Portland on the Backwater Blues Cruise along-side Reggie Houston and Grammy nominated pianist, Janice Scroggins, for three consecutive years (2011 thru 2013). Laura’s original song, “Candy,” (Dance/ Electronica) earned semi-finalist recognition among 18K song submissions in the International Songwriting Competition (2014). She has shared the stage with blues legend Norman Sylvester; opened for the iconic Portland band, NU SHOOZ, at the Portland Rose Festival; kicked off the Waterfront Blues Festival with her band on the Main Stage, and most recently performed a three set masterpiece in front of a sold out crowd at the iconic Doug Fir Lounge. Other notable national acts that Laura has opened for include: Ladi6 (New Zealand), Vicci Martinez (NBC Finalist for The Voice), David Ryan Harris (Former guitarist for John Mayer), and The Indigo Girls. The sound that Laura has developed over the past two years playing with some of the finest and most decorated musicians in America, is something that literally must be seen and heard to be believed.
