A Jazzy Christmas Cast Photo 2010

It is only the 2nd week of December and so much has already been accomplished!  The biggest news is that my vocal trio, Dangerous Curves produced the Christmas show for the Flamingo LibraryTheatre, “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! Its 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 Airforce Base and several private parties and now, I must admit its time for a bit of a break.

This is the first year that my Little Man really understands Christmas and it has been such a joy doing all the fun things in town. We have decorated the abode,  visited with Santa, we have played in the snow at Town Square and sung for the fabulous folks of Las Vegas.  Now its family time for this chicksinger to enjoy the most wonderful time of the year with those I love the most.  I sincerely hope your holiday season is filled with joy and love and Christmas cheer!
