Brandy began her career in the industry nearly 20 years ago as an entertainer at DiCarlo’s Gentlemen’s Club in Albany, New York. When the club hosted the Miss Exotic Dancer New York pageant in ’98, she entered as a contestant in her first competition…and won. She was then invited to represent New York in Las Vegas at the Miss Exotic Dancer USA pageant where she placed in the top five.
It was after this experience that the world of “Feature” entertainment was introduced to her. Sal DiCarlo, the owner of her home club put her in contact with the Continental Agency, and Brandy took her first booking as Feature Entertainer Brandilyn Banks in 2003. She took the industry by storm, reigning supreme in 2004 when she nabbed the titles of Miss Nude Exotic International, Miss Exotic Performer of the Year, a Gold G-String Award winner, and Runner-up in the highly coveted Miss Nude World Pageant. Quickly becoming one of the industry’s most sought-after entertainers, she traveled the country performing, always enjoying the show, but with her eyes open. Brandy was drawn to the “behind the scenes” procedures of the clubs, and the aspirations of becoming more than an entertainer came alive.
In 2008, she made the decision to retire from the stage. She returned to her home club and shared what she had learned on the road with DiCarlo. Quickly, he made the decision to offer her the general manager position. Brandy has since taken what she learned on the road and transformed her club into the Capital District’s premiere gentlemen’s club. Her club was awarded the 2017 Small Club of the Year/East Award at the 2017 ED Awards. Brandy is proof a dancer can take what she learns on the road and use it far beyond the stage.
