This week, our musical director Dan Ellis is helping us “curvify” a jazzy, cute arrangement of “Winter Wonderland” for the album (also arranged by our friend Trini), and next week we’ll be doing more mixing and laying down of some of the bass and drum tracks with the talented Darin Presley. We are so lucky to be surrounded by such artistically gifted and wonderful people, all working tirelessly to make this project a total success!

LATEST UPDATE: 9/28/12 Dangerous Curves’ Christmas CD!

As we head into the weekend, and into the FINAL WEEK of our IndieGogo campaign, we REALLY need your help spreading the word!

So many of you have been incredibly kind and generous, and we are SO grateful for your help (our most RECENT Curvy Contributors have been Kevin Lepine, Joann Zajac, Michael & Terri Gier, Elisa Black, and an anonymous donor from the great state of Georgia)! We have raised a little over $3500, which is AWESOME…but it also means we are still about $2,750 shy of our goal…with less than 7 days left (campaign ENDS next Friday)! AGH!!!!

So, if you are one of those friends who have been “meaning to” contribute, but just haven’t done so yet, PLEASE do so now…we really need you…here’s the link: www.IndieGogo.com/DangerousCurvesLasVegas 🙂

If you’ve already become a Curvy Contributor, thank you again AND we would be incredibly grateful if you could possibly SHARE our message & campaign with a few more of your friends? As you know, we have some wonderful perks available and it would mean the world to us! www.IndieGogo.com/DangerousCurvesLasVegas

Just a little update on our progress:

We have been SUPER BUSY in the studio recording this past month, and we are almost 1/2 way through the album…we are so proud of what we’ve done so far (can’t WAIT for you to hear the finished project)! In fact, here’s a little VIDEO we shot while in the studio recording our Christmas version of “Glow Worm” this past week…check it out (the “Jingle Bells” you hear at the beginning is not actually part of the album…it’s just a little something extra we threw together…just for YOU, our Curvy friends):

Again, many, MANY thanks to those who have already become a part of our Curvy Community…WHO WILL BE NEXT?!?!?! 😉

All our CURVY love,
The Girls of “Dangerous Curves”

Happy Thanksgiving and Hello LA from the girls of Dangerous Curves!

Can you believe it’s almost Thanksgiving?! We’ll tell you a big, curvy secret…WE CAN’T EITHER!  We’ve been writing shows, writing new arrangements, recording in the studio for our new Christmas EP and preparing for our cabaret debut at Sterling’s Upstairs at Vitello’s! To tell you the truth, it really is time for some delicious turkey, stuffing and a lovely glass of Chardonnay! Gluten free for Lisa, please! Check out her Gluten Free info here! 

Last weekend, we had the pleasure of performing at one of our local and beautiful theatres, Freedom Hall. What a lovely audience on a fab Vegas Sunday afternoon! We performed many Dangerous Curves favorites like our Radio Medley, with songs such as Sentimental Journey, Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen, Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy and features of actual radio moments of the past, Natural Woman, I’m A Woman and many more!

We even had a real merchandise table with our new items! A darling T shirt, a handy shopping bag, a useful keychain and of course our CD, Girl Talk!

We were quite overwhelmed with everyone’s interest and generosity with our merch and very grateful!  If you are interested in any of our items check out our Curvy Boutique.

Now, our focus is on December 4th and our cabaret debut at Sterling’s Upstairs at Vitello’s! Our show is called, Dangerous Curves…finding Harmony on the road less traveled… it is a blend of some of our faves and new arrangements too!  From Judy Garland to Stephen Sondheim to contemporary composers like Scott Alan, we are taking you on a musical journey to share the Dangerous Curves message.  What is that message?  YOU are wonderful and powerful, exactly as you are!  Work hard to make the most of yourself and you are sure to achieve love and success! It is our goal for ourselves and we want to share it with you! Plus, as you can see we just have so much fun with each other and our fabulous Musical Director, Dan Ellis, what better way to spend a Sunday evening than with Dangerous Curves?! Make reservations right away!

Find us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for the most up-to-date info on curvy  music and fun!

Happy New Year 2011!

The Curvy girls wish you a Happy, Blessed and Prosperous New Year!

We are so grateful for all their fans, friends and families, and we could not be following our dreams without you! Whatever road you choose to take this year, may you find peace, joy and great happiness. Follow your dreams, live your life to the fullest and love unconditionally.

Happy New Year!

A Jazzy Christmas!

It is only the 2nd week of December and so much has already been accomplished! The biggest news is that Dangerous Curves produced the Christmas show for the Flamingo Library Theatre, “A Jazzy Christmas” and it was an absolute success! We had special guest stars, we had surprise guests, we had a gorgeous set, we sang the Hallelujah chorus! Yes, it’s true! Three girls in Las Vegas sang the Hallelujah chorus and rocked the house!

We were so very fortunate to have the Swing City Dolls as one of our guests. They are 3, absolutely adorable girls who do the “vintage” thing in a contemporary way. They sang “Hitch A Ride With Santa” and then we did a fantastic “Santa Medley” featuring each Doll on a favorite song-of-the-season with the Curves on back ups. We also had the pleasure of having the popular jazz quartet, Fifth Ave sing their amazing versions of Jolly Old Saint Nicholas and Carol of the Bells/My Favorite Things. If you have never heard these men sing, PUT IT ON THE TOP OF YOUR LIST! Their arrangements (Rob Hyatt) are truly magical and the Curves counted ourselves as lucky that they were available to share the stage with us.

Probably, the best moments for me were sharing the stage with our husbands! Yes, its true, all our husbands are awesome singers and truly brought the house down! Michael (Gret’s hubby) sang “Rudy” a jazzy version of “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” with all of us on back up duty, Ron (Lisa’s hubby) sang “You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch” and my hubby sang “O Holy Night” with all of us on back up as well. The audience couldn’t get enough of our boys and we just loved it!

We made appearances this month at Sam’s Town and Nellis Air Force Base and several private parties and now, its time for a bit of a Christmas break.

All the Curves have lots going on with their solo gigs and family events and of course, our annual Curvy Christmas dinner together! Mmmm, can’t wait for delicious wine and food served up by one of our fave, gluten free place, Maggianos.

Official Last Post of 2009

Here we are at our annual Christmas luncheon at Maggianos (they have great gluten free choices for Lisa) where we had wonderful service and yummy food!

Even as I write the title I am absolutely amazed! What a year Dangerous Curves had this year! A full-scale 90 minute show, numerous appearances at many local venues/casinos and even a show on the East coast! Our debut CD “Girl Talk” went live on Itunes and Amazon MP3 and Napster. Our repertoire has doubled and our sound has found its way to a warm, thrilling, harmonic place that winds and weaves around each song and really puts the “Dangerous Curves” stamp on it.

We have big plans for 2010. We are scheduled for another full-scale show at the Starbright Theatre in Summerlin in May, we are already working on a Christmas CD and just a few things that we are keeping under the curvy radar until they are closer to coming to fruition. The most important thing though, is that we simply want to thank each of you for your love and support! Our families, our husbands, our children and our friends definitely give their time and love and more to help us reach our goals. We could not do this without them and you!

The Curves wish you a very Happy New Year and may all your dreams and wishes come true this coming year and every year!
