Live Music Preview:
The Bettys (Band)
The Bettys are a burlesque revival that riffs on torch singers of the 30’s and 40’s & the golden age of swing and big band. Jazz vocalists Lisette St. Louis, Olivia McLean, and Patty Pedersen bring a sassy edge to modern classics like Eye of the Tiger that will have you hanging up the boxing gloves and reaching for a cigarello. The group incorporates their 3-part harmonies with swing, jazz and an edge of punk.
A trio that embraces contradiction – composition/improvisation; cleanliness/dirtiness; tonality/atonality; anxiety/tranquility. Each member of the group contributes their own original compositions, and as composers, each member has their own idiosyncratic voice; however the meat of the performance lies in the free-flowing group improvisations which may in turn feed into the pieces or take them in entirely new directions altogether. Three personalities from Vermont, San Francisco, and Sweden combine to make the trio that is PinkBrown.
A Person Disguised As People (DJ)
London, ON-based musician, promoter, producer and DJ Ian Doig–Phaneuf will provide an eclectic DJ set that will fill the dance-floor with one common theme – one hell of a dance beat.
