C'mon Boys and Girls - it's Connie's Birthday!!

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 23rd 7pm (Doors open at 6:30)
THE WHOA NELLIES in concert at MARTUNI'S (at Market and Valencia)

Special Birthday Concert for Connie Champagne
$5 cover (only $3 if you dress in 60s/70s garb).

From the band's website:
"The Whoa Nellies are an outta-sight new [sic] vocal group that features the incredible talents of Leigh Crow and the legendary Miss Connie Champagne. We are an ultra-mod quintet specializing in classic three-part harmony pop songs from the mid-to-late 60's and early 70's. We take great pride in resurrecting the lost art of vocal harmonizing as a tribute to our ultra-fab faves: The Mamas and The Papas, The Hollies, The Partridge Family, The Monkees and The Cowsills. We are San Francisco's very own "Bubblegum Preservation Society". Our groovy performing outfits are also from the flower-power era."

Connie Champagne is one of San Francisco's entertainment treasures. A versatile singer who performs solo shows as well as fronting a variety of bands, Connie is equally at home performing big band, swing, standards, 1960's pop, rock - she started out in punk bands. She is also a gifted actress, best known for her portrayals of Judy Garland. Her Garland persona has been described as "a subtle masterpiece of parody and homage", and is in high demand.
