4th Annual Beehive Holiday Blowout!: Christine Ohlman & Rebel Montez + George Baker Band

  • CAFE NINE 250 STATE STREET NEW HAVEN CT 06510 (map)

This queen of blue-eyed rock n' soul grew up loving equally the sweetness of a Memphis horn line and the raunch of an electric guitar riff, whether played by Muddy Waters, Keith Richards, or Pop Staples. Teased her blonde hair into a beehive in honor of Ronnie Spector and never looked back, picking up a guitar and forging a career as a songwriter in the process. She's the current, long-time vocalist with the Saturday Night Live Band, who sang at SNL's 25th Anniversary telecast, Bob Dylan's 30th Anniversary bash at The Garden (with George Harrison, Chrissie Hynde, and others), the 2009 Obama Inaugural Gala in Washington, D.C. and The Lincoln Center "American Songbook" series with Sting, Lou Reed and Van Dyke Parks. All the while continuing to torch clubs up and down the Eastern Seaboard in support of her recordings "I've come here tonight to set your souls on fire," she'll tell an audience. And she will.
