SIMPLY listening to Melbourne based outfit DollSquad won’t give you a complete picture of the unique offerings of the six-piece all-girl rock band. The ‘grrl rock’ group are often clad in leather cat suits with beehive hairdos and attitudes to match. It’s been four years between drinks for DollSquad. In that time the band has acquired four new members and a rawer rock sound on their second album Lethal in Leather. Cave Gurl has a punk edge, growling vocals and sets a fast pace for the rest of the album. The high energy album slows down on the final track Everything. The ballad demonstrates the diversity of Joey’s vocal talents as she sings about true love.
As a young pioneer in the creative arts, Vesper White has laid siege to hearts and minds all around Australia for the past two years. Her creative talents have led her on adventures to a myriad of stages, festivals, parties and galleries. Best loved for her darkly alluring burlesque acts, Vesper has no fear in exploring everything from the traditional and historical, to the alternative, the weird, the horrifying and that based in fetish.
The Tanquerays are best described as shakin' & stirred! Forget traditional burlesque or Go-Go. The Tanquerays are equal parts Shake Rattle n Roll. The gals have been shimmying all over town with their unique style of Go-Go influenced by the Ikettes and 60's psychedelia. Most recently dancing for Dan-Saltman-Sultan and band at The Forum, Cherry Rock, The Big Day Out and a ga-zillion other festivals. The Tanquerays are sure to make you move and groove.
