Pat Wilder aka Chocolata Blonda When Pat Wilder is in the

Patrice DeArmon of the Pride and Joy band, Lady Bianca, Ledisi,
the Bredford Brothers and many more. Chocolata Blonda in the
recording studio has her guitar tracks labeled on many of
artist CD's and commericals from United States to Europe.
"Lady Guitar" Wilder has a funky smooth guitar lead and
rhythm sound favoring Johnny Guitar Watson and her voice is
strong and raunchy like many funky blues female artist are...
She can shout the blues, croon soulfully, and slide into her
upper range with a gruff, girlish cadence reminiscent of Macy
Gray Unique. Wilder is equally effective playing rhythm guitar
and uncoiling stinging blues lines. She's got a clean, lean
sound that's an effective foil for Avery's sumptuous bluesy
voice. Pat knows the importance of protecting her hearing
and uses musicians earplugs while performing.
