Christine Ohlman & Rebel Montez w/ Lovelace/Stoltz
Saturday July 15, 2017 @ 8:00 PM
41 Bridge Street is thrilled to welcome back the incomparable CHRISTINE OHLMAN & REBEL MONTEZ with special guests, Americana duo Lovelace/Stoltz, on Saturday, July 15th at 8 pm!
This queen of blue-eyed rock ní soul, who grew up loving both the sweetness of a Memphis horn line and the raunch of an electric guitar riff, 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. Ohlman tours relentlessly, torching clubs up and down the Eastern Seaboard with her band Rebel Montez (featuring Michael Colbath on bass, Cliff Goodwin on guitar, and Larry Donahue on drums). She is the current, long-time vocalist with the Saturday Night Live Band, and was featured with the B-52ís during the recent SNL 40th Anniversary post-show concert.
With her trademark, mile-high, platinum beehive hairdo, and an enviable collection of sequins and rhinestones, Ohlman looks like a lady to be reckoned with, and when she opens her mouth to sing, the truth comes out. But underneath it all lurks a no-frills approach to music. In her own words: ďI give it to an audience straight, which is the way I like it myself. Yes, I like to shout, and I like to croon, and I love to wail. I just need to get in the groove and rockónot think too much about itótear it up or soothe it over. Iíve loved rock ní roll since I was a little girl, and Iíll love it forever. Itís my greatest kick, and my greatest privilege, to be able to get up on a stage and rip it apart. Thatís rock ní roll to me. Iím here to set your soul on fire.Ē And set your soul on fire she most certainly willódonít miss the legendary Christine Ohlman & Rebel Montez at 41 Bridge Street!
Check Out Christine Ohlman!
