End of Year Round Up 2017

How is it possible that two years have gone by without an update? When we’ve been busy and crazy and excited and doing so many wonderful things??

Ah, time is but a fleeting thing, curvy friends! And we’ll just have to put this in the “better late than never” category! This is just a tiny, curvy sprinkling of what we’ve been up to! From Las Vegas, to California, to the great state of Texas, we’ve been sharing our beautiful harmonies with friends, old and new. We’ve shared the stage with talented friends and love our great home city of Las Vegas. From the National Anthem to the Dennis Bono Show, to corporate events to private parties (they flew us to Texas for the weekend!) what a fabulous time we’ve had together sharing our music, sharing our message of empowerment and love and growing as musicians and more importantly, a deepening friendship that only time and music can build. The smiles and hugs you see below are the real deal. Not sayin’ there ain’t been some tears and words! We are full of passion and emotion! But that’s the best part! Sometimes rehearsal is just that…rehearsal. And, sometimes, it’s therapy.  ❤

To finish off this year, we are THRILLED to say that we have been chosen not once but twice on the Women of Substance Podcast! Our first appearance is the first Holiday Podcast of the year. Podcast #702, date available, Friday November 24th.  Please listen and comment! We’d love that!! We’ll update the blog when the second podcast goes live.

What’s in store for 2018? Let’s just say, that it’s gonna be “jazzy”… dare we say “edgy”…and we’ve got a friend…not just any friend, but a talented, handsome believer-in-the-Curves type of friend! It’s not quite time for the announcement yet. Details are still being worked out! Check back soon, we’ll be updating you all in January.

May you enjoy a most wonderful Holiday season filled with joy and family and friends and most of all, beautiful music!

End of the Year, 2013!

We can hardly  believe it is already the end of  year, 2013! Did you have a wonderful holiday season? Ours was filled with song and joy for sure. We even received a fantastic review of our Christmas CD, “Star of Wonder”  from Don Grigware of Broadway World “Star of Wonder rings in the holidays with joy and mirth…no, harmonious ecstasy! – don grigware” (ok, totally wow!!!) and we are on his “Best of 2013” CD list! Check it out here!

We had Christmas performances for the Veterans and at Sam’s Town to absolutely wonderful audiences. In fact our year was filled with great shows with songs ranging in genre from Top 40 at The Aria for a corporate event to an Americana style Fourth of July Spectacular and a really unique conference NAB demonstrating new technology! We sang across our fair city from the South Point to the San Gennarro Feast to the Sun Coast receiving praise and warmth from our loving locals. We are so very grateful for the support and love of our family and friends!

Dangerous Curves 2012

Star of Wonder, Dangerous Curves, Las Vegas

Star of Wonder, Dangerous Curves, Las VegasStar of Wonder, Dangerous Curves, Las VegasDangerous Curves, 2012…it has truly been one of the most sensational years in Dangerous Curves history. And, while our history is rather short (should we simply say new?), it has been filled with the love and support of family and friends. However, we never dreamed just how much support we would literally see and feel than when we did our first Dangerous Curves, Indiegogo campaign. Crowd-funding?! That’s for big stars and artists with HUGE email lists and…well, you know…right? NO! We really didn’t know the depth and scope of your huge and generous hearts!

The above pictures show the fruition of that generosity in our sophomore CD called “Star of Wonder”, now available on iTunesAmazon MP3 and of course, physical copies available by simply emailing us at dangerous curves@cox.net.
