“Swing City Dolls” at Bootlegger Bistro…

On Sunday night, March 15th, Dangerous Curves headed out to the Bootlegger Bistro to see our friend Robin Vincent perform with her vintage swing trio called “Swing City Dolls.” How fun!!!  They put on a really entertaining show from start to finish.  Very vintage, very cute.

The trio of girls (Connie Murray, Robin Vincent, and Natalie Carson) have been together for over 10 years (some of you may have known them previously as “The Swing Sisters.”)  Their repertoire for this 90-minute show consisted of several of the ‘classic’ trio songs that you would expect (songs like Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy & Apple Blossom Time) and a few which came as a complete surprise (like a medley of hits from QUEEN, done vintage-swing style… I’m not kidding…really!).  I have to hand it to their musical director and drummer, Jim Belk…he has written some incredibly clever arrangements for them! Plus, I really want to compliment them on their patter between the songs…very cute, and very natural sounding.

It’s always so much fun for us to go check out and support other entertainers and groups in town… seriously, there is SOOOO much talent here in Las Vegas! Every time we get to see someone else perform, we learn something new…and this was no exception.

Overall, a very fun evening…Congrats Girls!

PS> By the way, you need to check out the Swing City Dollsnew website… TOTALLY CUTE!  Their adorable logo was designed by the great John Magness and their photos (like the one at the top) were taken by Jim Warfel. They are definitely on the right track with their marketing!

Swing City Dolls will be performing at the Eastside Cannery (5255 Boulder Highway, Las Vegas, NV 89122) in Marilyn’s Lounge on March 22, July 31 and August 1, from 4:00pm-8:00pm. For tickets, call 702-856-5300.
