Victoria band CURL will bring their eclectic mix of blues and classic rock to the Heriot Bay Inn (HBI) tonight.
Performing songs in the style of Janis Joplin, Etta James and Aretha Franklin, CURL features Helen Davies on lead vocals and guitar, Dee Cooper on keyboards, Susan Johnson on bass guitar and Christa Rossner on drums.
“We’re pretty excited about playing at the Heriot Bay Inn again,” said Davies. “All of us love Quadra Island and really appreciate the wonderful people who come to the HBI to see us.
“It’s true what they say: ‘if there’s no audience, there ain’t no show’ – and we’ve always had wonderful audiences on Quadra!”
Primarily a blues band, CURL also plays a wide variety of music with cross-generational appeal including songs by Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, the Temptations, the Mavericks and even Tennessee Ernie Ford.
Operating in and around Victoria for the past ten years, CURL was featured at Victoria’s 2009 Loudspeaker Festival; at the 2010 Rosedale Ridge mini-festival at Cowichan Station; and earlier this year opened for award-nominated bluesmen Bill Johnson and David Vest.
CURL was a featured act at the 2012 Spring Blues Party, put on by the Haro Strait Music Society.
