Catwalk Blues hosts dance, fashion show

June 27 planned for Tallyho Sports Bar in Victoria

Victoria-based blues band CURL will join the Deb Rhymer Band for a Girls Night Out – Catwalk Blues dance and fashion show, Friday June 27 at the Tallyho Sports Bar.

“This will be a really special event that everyone can enjoy,” said Deb Rhymer.  “Two great dance bands and a fashion show – what’s not to love? There will also be door prizes and drink specials.”

Added Helen Davies: “We’re calling it a girl’s night out, but any blues fans will have a great time.  CURL is pleased to be working with Deb and her band, and also with our fashion vendors, Mercedes Lane Too and Jean Gig.”

CURL provides danceable, energetic blues-based music, both original and borrowed from the classics, with vocalist Davies singing in a voice reminiscent of Janis Joplin and Etta James.

The Deb Rhymer Band is a Victoria favorite and long time host of the city’s Sunday afternoon weekly “blues service” and jam. This popular free event showcases some of Victoria’s best musical talent. The Deb Rhymer band has one CD, which was applauded by CBC blues expert Holger Petersen on his Saturday Night Blues show upon its 2006 release.

CURL released its debut CD, All My Fault, in 2013. A mix of old-school blues and original songs, it has received positive reviews from fans and media, with wide airplay on several media outlets including CFUV Victoria; Kamloops’ Blues Underground Network; and Vancouver’s Big Groove Radio Show, among others. The band has also been profiled on CHEK TV.

The Deb Rhymer Band is Deb Rhymer on vocals, Neil Taylor on guitar, Clayton O’Howe on bass and Andy Graffiti on drums.

CURL is Helen Davies on vocals and guitar, Dee Cooper on keyboard, Susan Johnson on bass and Christa Rossner on drums.
