This week’s guests In the Flamingo Lounge are Blaise-Mercedes and Malachi Fibonacci from Blaised and Confused: A femme led, high energy rock band from Buffalo, NY. They joined Rockabilly Greg in the Flamingo Lounge on January 6, 2024.
Blaise Mercedes stands as the guitarist, singer, songwriter, and the visionary band leader. From picking up the guitar at the age of 9 to almost a decade of professional singing, Blaise’s musical journey is a testament to their versatile artistry. They have a voice that carries grit, power, and a vulnerable edge, the emotional centerpiece of their sonic exploration. Beyond the notes and chords, their lyrics tell a deeper story, often delving into the intricate landscapes of mental health.
Malachi Fibonacci is a self-taught multimedia musician born in Buffalo. He started playing in a small band in 2017 and eventually went on a quest to find like-minded musicians and found Blaised and Confused in that journey.
Blaise Mercedes came back to the Flamingo Lounge with their guitar player, Oscar Woodrich to create the first music video produced “In the Flamingo Lounge”. Brittany Sedor and Michael Chmiel from Nickel City B-Sides created the inaugural video to accompany the 99th episode of the podcast.
