Music Scene: May 18–24
Girls, girls, girls, it’s Gotta Be Girls, performing at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 19, at the KAFM Radio Room, 1310 Ute Ave.
According to the Montrose-based quartet’s Facebook page, band members are Glenda Fletchall, Karen Mercer, Barb Bernhardt and Margaret Freeman. They play “acoustic music featuring tight vocal harmonies accompanied by guitars, mandolin, bass, banjo and percussion.”
The band originally started as a duo in 1987 with Mercer and Fletchall, notes the Facebook bio. Mercer and Fletchall performed a repertoire of mainly folk music and originals throughout the Southwest. After 10 years, they took a break, resuming in 2007, adding Bernhardt and new genres to the mix. Two years later, Freeman joined the group.
Gotta Be Girls is heavily influenced by a variety of female artists and the band modulates “between alternative folk, blues, pop, swing, bluegrass, jazz and country,” according to a news release.
If the music of Blame Sally, Bonnie Raitt, Sarah Mclachlin, the Indigo Girls or KD Lang is your style, then Gotta Be Girls is the show to see.
Tickets are $15.
