RIYL: Normandie Wilson
The Joyelles evolved from an earlier cover band called Casino Royale featuring Normandie Wilson, who says another band called Casino Royale objected to their use of the name. Wilson changed the name and began adding originals to their set list, most often accompanied by David Fleminger, Danny Cress, Symea Solomon, and Maggie Taylor.
"The Joyelles function more as a collective of singers and performers instead of just being a band," says Wilson. Their summer 2016 tour took them up and down the west coast, as well as several east coast dates running through August 18 at the Cake Shop in New York, NY.
