We were working hard for you this weekend at the lovely Starbright Theatre in Las Vegas.  We performed our hit show, “Girl Talk” which features the songs of some of the great female singers of all time, Broadway old and new, our take on the great standards  and even a few surprises!  We had 2 special guest artists with us-the gorgeous and talented Ray Jon who accompanied us on acoustic guitar as we sang one of our new songs, “Hold On” and we sang a 6 part acapella “God Bless America” with 5th Ave a superb vocal jazz group.   
As you can see from the above picture, we had a fantastic band as well!  Our MD and pianist, Tony Bronco, Jeff Davis on bass and Gary Olds holding the beat.  This was a full production 90 minute show with costume changes, wonderful lighting and sound (thanks to Jim and Dale!) and a whole lot fun!  A big, huge thanks to our families and friends, for ALL the help you gave us this weekend and all the love we get from you everyday!

>"Girl Talk" and Courage

Its funny when things are really in sync.  The last 2 weeks have been absolutely brimming with activity for my vocal trio, Dangerous Curves, which means I have been one busy Chicksinger.  
Last night we performed to a nearly full house at the Starbright Theatre in Las Vegas.  It was a completely self-written, self-produced and self-promoted show.  Now, this is not to say we didn’t have help.  Of course, we did!  The theatre has a number of regulars, so they sent out a press release, our families and friends who ran errands or helped that day with backstage or filming, a few of our super talented friends wrote arrangements for us, things like that.  But for the last 4 months, the girls and I have met 2-3 times a week, rehearsing songs, working on new ideas, staging, doing all the social media marketing, etc.  Then, in the last 2 weeks, in addition to rehearsals which now included our musical director and band, we did 2 live performances to promote ourselves as well.  Holy Moly!  What a huge amount of work and sacrifice, time and money.   It also took a great deal of courage, which happens to be the Sunday Scribblings writing prompt for the weekend!  Synchronicity!  You gotta love it.
Funny thing is, now that this project is over, we (the girls)are taking 2 weeks off to catch up on our personal lives and bask in the glow of our awesome endeavor. I am so happy with the work we did (I even did a comedy song!) and very proud of the girls as they were absolutely fantastic!  
I have several pet projects waiting in the wings and now that I will have the time, I am wondering,  will I have the courage to pursue these personal and oh-so-important dreams and goals?  
I would have to say, based on the accomplishment just realized, all I need to do, is jump in with both feet and all my curves and success will be inevitable!  Here’s to a rockin’ summer!

It was our distinct pleasure to perform as the spotlight guest on Thursday afternoon with some of the ladies from Menopause The Musical (currently playing at the Luxor Hotel) at the lovely Suncoast Hotel and Casino.  The Curves love performing there as the audience is welcoming and fun and the stage is beautiful.  
There was certainly a lot of chicksingers present as the hostess for the afternoon was Ms. Skye Miles and the featured performers were some of the ladies from her cast of Menopause.  Laura Lee O’Connell, Annette Verdelino and Lori Legacy rounded out the talent filled afternoon.  These girls are not only great singers, but also fabulous actresses and awesome girls and loads of fun backstage.  And, let me tell you, Ms. Skye Miles is one helluva singer and did a wonderful job hosting. 
On Saturday, we had a great rehearsal with one of our special guest stars, 5th Ave.  Rob Hyatt has arranged an absolutely killer version of God Bless America for us and them to perform at our show on Saturday, May 8th.  Yes! It’s 6 parts!!! OMG, people, it is gorgeous.  Rob is like arranger extraordinaire and I am so excited to have him around us!  Not only that, we recorded our CD “Girl Talk” in Rob’s studio.  He is a multi-talented man, for sure and we love him!
It’s only a few short days until the show at the Starbright, with lots in-between from more rehearsals to a local festival and…well, you’ll just have to keep reading to keep up with the Curvy girls!  Check us out at Twitter, and our Facebook page and at  dangerouscurveslasvegas.com
