Through original songs, stories and audience interaction, this Parents Choice Award winner takes his audience on an exciting journey back through his childhood sharing the daily joys, dreams and blunders that today’s kids can relate to, laugh at, and understand.

Actor, singer and storyteller Lou Del Bianco has been working with children of all ages since 1982. According to the New York Times, Lou's dramatic approach to storytelling "puts pow into passivity!" The Parents Choice foundation states that "few performers excel as both storyteller and musician, but Lou Del Bianco is one who does." Lou's 6 recordings have garnered high praise from Billboard Magazine, Parent's Choice, NAPPA, BOOKLIST, CHILD Magazine, Family Fun and a slew of others!

 

Lou has performed all over the country, from the Tastes of Chicago to the Kravis Center to Carnegie Hall. His music video, "A Little Bit Clumsy", is presently playing on the Learning Channel. He has traveled the Northeast as an artist in residence for 17 years; performed in San Diego at the International Reading Association's annual convention; served as keynote speaker on arts / character education from North Carolina to Massachusetts.

 

On an educational level, Lou has been an artist-in-residence since 1987 and has worked in many schools alongside teachers to help improve literacy in the classroom. His Kinderart residency (created with his wife, Camille) was honored by New York State as a model program, and his StoryTheater residency, Around the World and Make a Good Choice! one man shows have reached thousands of elementary children all over the tri-state area.

Lou’s  portrayal of Abraham Lincoln has been endorsed by the Lincoln Bicentennial Commission.  His grandfather, Luigi, chief carver on Mount Rushmore was recently honored by TLC’s CAKE BOSS with a remarkably life like cake of the American icon. Lou also performs a one man about Luigi.
