||I am addicted to this band. Once you hear them playing live, this happens. They are all amazing musicians and Bella's voice is increadible. But also Izzy, Darla and Wyatt are also impressive, when they sing. Best I ever heard!
Soulful Rock from the heart of Texas, from Fleetwod Mac and Prince to Sheryl Crow and Pink! Straight from the heart of Texas, Ciao Bella is a Dallas based band; melodic and filled with the soul that comes from loving what they do. A group of talented songwriters, singers, and musicians, Ciao Bella is: Darla Whisenant (bass/vocals), Izzy (guitars/vocals/keyboards), Chris Estrada (guitars/vocals), Scott Miles (drums), and Bella Estrada (Lead vocals/guitars/keyboards). Ciao Bella has been a working band since 1999, playing clubs all around the Dallas/Fort Worth area, taking time out in August 2003 to play a brief tour in Germany. In October 2003 and again October 2004, Ciao Bella stepped into the platform boots, costumes, and makeup to do a KISS tribute show. The band continues to focus their efforts on songwriting and original pop/rock music. Their single “Tell Me” won runner up in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest for two consecutive years. The Ciao Bella CD is currently being re-worked for the addition of 2 more songs and should be released soon. After August 2003 and June 2004 they went again to Germany June 2005, where they fascinated more and more people. And they will do that again August 2006!!!!!!
