Just reading the title makes our Curvy selves shiver with delight! Yes, its been a while since the Curves have posted in the blogosphere. It’s not been for want or desire! There’s lots going on in Curvy Land and it’s about time to catch up and share!
The most obvious piece of exciting news is our move to WordPress.com! We loved our Blogger blog, but we just felt the need to get a fresh perspective on blogging about our Curvy adventures. Share us with your friends…we’d be ever so grateful!
Last month was filled with some wonderful opportunities for us but the highlight of the month was the gig we had for Vodafone, UK. The guests thought they were attending a real Las Vegas wedding. Boy, were they in for a surprise! From wacky bridesmaids/nuns (that was us!) to barbershop style groomsmen (Fifth Ave), a handsome and wild Minister (Ron Smith), the crazy parents (Rob Hyatt and Terry Gandy) of the bride (Jennifer Vossmer) and of course the groom-turned-Elvis (Brian Mills) they were all in for quite a ride! We spent the whole evening entertaining these fine folks with awesome songs like “Say A Little Prayer” and “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” to our zany and splashy Nuns number, “I Will Follow Him”. There were silly antics like hoola hoops and a real pink Cadillac that drives right into the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel! It was truly one of the most fun corporate gigs we have ever had and wonderful to be able to use our acting chops as well as sing. As you can see, when the Curves get together, there is nothing but fun!
So, where do snowflakes and Christmas carols come in to play, here? Dangerous Curves is hard at work on their sophomore effort in recording and this time it will be a Christmas EP. We are working on and singing through arrangements from all over the globe! As soon as we make our final song choices, we’ll let you know…meanwhile, it sure does help keep us cool in the hot summer sun of Vegas to sing through these super cool stylings of the season.
OK! ARE YOU READY?! Dangerous Curves is THRILLED to announce their Los Angeles cabaret debut on December 4th, 2011 at Sterling’s Upstairs at Vitellos! Cited as “LA’s cabaret destination” by the Los Angeles Times, Sterling’s Upstairs at Vitellos is the #1 Cabaret Supper Club in the greater Los Angeles area! Stop it!!! How super curvy-licious is that?! We are beyond excited for this enormous opportunity and we are already hard at work, writing this show.
We knew we had to bring in some big guns so along with that announcement, the Curves are over-the-moon to announce that Dan Ellis has been officially chosen as our Musical Director. Here’s a bit about Dan, straight from his Reverbnation page.
“Dan Ellis is not only the bandleader of the Las Vegas Classic Jazz Band, he’s the music director for the newest production to hit the Las Vegas Strip: Nunsense, at the Las Vegas Hilton. He is also the music director for “DRINKIN’ – SINGIN’ – SWINGIN’ – Salute to Frank Sinatra – Sammy Davis Jr. – Dean Martin.” which recently performed to a sold-out crowd of 5,000 at the Colloseum at Caesars Windsor, Ontario. A Cheesehead by birth (from Green Bay, WI) he met his wife, Vicki, while working the high seas as a Musician Supervisor for Carnival Cruise Lines. He now makes Henderson, NV his home and his proudest achievement is being Dad to sons Christopher (7) and Matthew (3).”
