The six-member squad consists of Vangie Gardner on lead vocals, Beth Lee on guitar and vocals, Rachel Allred on bass and vocals, Alice Evans on keys and vocals, Tara Rix hitting the alto sax and Melody Douglas on drums. The band, which formed in 2014, regularly plays their characteristic “retro chic” rock’n’roll – a mix of swing, rockabilly, funk and a special something – at noted venues across town, including the Sahara Lounge, The Blackheart and Scholz Garden.
6:30 pm: The Bluebonnets
The Bluebonnets play glam/garage/blues/rock complimented with layered girl-group harmonies. Tight and tough, their songs are energetic and genre defying—arrangements held together byguitar interplay and hooks you rememberlong after the show. Featuring guitarists Eve Monsees and Kathy Valentine, Singer/bassist Dominique Davalos and drummer Christina Comley, the band puts a feminine slant onblues injected rock n’ roll, yet don’t fall into any musical category easily; traces of pop, roots, country and punk artfully interweave into the music.
