A Jazzy Christmas!

Happy Thanksgiving! Well, it’s been a full couple of weeks for Dangerous Curves as we’ve been getting ready for our upcoming show, “A Jazzy Christmas”, at the Clark County Performing Arts Center (also called the Flamingo Library Theatre). Lots of music to arrange, learn, and memorize…costumes and stage decor to search for and purchase…video multimedia to prepare…advertising to design and send out…special appearances to promote our show…whew, I’m exhausted just typing it all out! :)

First of all, we’d like to send out a big thank you to Tony Branco, Gina Raakin, Trini Garza, Stewart Daylida, and our wonderful husbands (Ron, Dennis & Michael) for all they’ve done to help us get this show ready…it’s gonna be great! Secondly, we want to make sure YOU have all the pertinent info so that you can come to the show! Hope to see you there…

This Past Month: CRAZY!

Hello everyone! Well, the past month has been a little crazy and super-busy…and VERY FUN! Since my last post, following our gig at PRESIDIO, I have been pretty much going non-stop and loving every minute of it (I would always rather be busy, busy, busy than sitting at home doing nothing).

In addition to all the shows, and of course “regular life” stuff, there have been lots of extra rehearsals with the Curvy girls as we are working on both an “acoustic” version of our show (which we premiered a bit of at the Green Girl Music & Arts Festival this past month…pictured) and learning TONS of Holiday music for our upcoming show at the Flamingo Library Theatre, “A Jazzy Christmas” with Dangerous Curves and Friends! We’re really excited about this show…mark your calendars now…it’s Sunday, Decmeber 5 at 2:00pm. The address is 1401 E. Flamingo Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89119 and you can call 702-658-6741 to reserve your tickets!!!

Our gig at the Gold Coast continues to go well…we have built up a decent following and the crowds continue to grow each month…and we are already booked for the next two months (Tuesday, November 16 thru Friday, Nov 19, 2:00-5:00pm AND Tuesday, December 14 thru Friday, Dec 17, 2:00-5:00pm). The address is 4000 West Flamingo Road, Las Vegas, NV 89103, and we are in the Gold Coast Showroom/Lounge. So if you’re not busy, come on out and join us…there’s no cover charge and no drink minimum…just great Classic Jazz! Hey, and guess what? I’ve even got a SIGN with my picture on it in front of the showroom now…how COOL is that?!?! (I know, I’m such a geek!) Anyway, life continues to go well and I feel extremely blessed to be able to do what I LOVE to do. I am so grateful for my family, friends and incredible husband who continually support me and encourage me to follow my dreams… <<BIG, HUGE HUGS>>
