Saturday October 19th 6.30 Vix & The Slick Chix
October 19 @ 6:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Hailing from Queensland’s Sunshine Coast – “Vix and the Slick Chix” are an energetic, 3 piece, all female band with a BIG sound and a double helping of joy. Musically derived from a blues foundation, with an added twist of Gospel, Soul & R&B, their style pays homage to the many & varied sounds of the blues. This award winning Blues Band originated in Brisbane’s West End in 1997 after completing a successful season as the house band with the “Vulcana Womens Circus”. The Girls love affair with the blues can be traced back to the years spent honing their skills with Florida Blues Man, the late great ‘Wiley Reed’.
‘The Chix’ are known for their tight grooves, dynamic vocals, upbeat style & their quirky onstage banter. Musically derived from a blues foundation, with an added twist of Country, Gospel, Soul & R&B, their style pays homage to the many & varied sounds of the blues. The band is driven by the smokey powerhouse vocals of Vix, who The Courier Mail called an “accomplished blues aficionado, with a huge presence and a voice to match”.Coupled with the sweet & melodic harmonies from Bass Player, Aleathea Monsour the girls create a vocal landscape that can melt the hardest of hearts! Joining Aleathea in setting the rythmic grooves is Drummer, Clare Smith, whose style is so laid back and effortless it’s appears she’s doing very little, but your feet will affirm, she’s the boss of the beats. The band released their first CD in 2000 to wide acclaim, picking up 4 BASEQ Blues Excellence awards, including Band of the year , Album of the year, Song of the year & Best Female Vocalist.
The Chix are currently hard at work writing a new album, and hope to have it completed by early 2020.
It’s always exciting to play a new venue & this will be our first outing to the Coolum Bowlo. We are really looking forward to bringing ‘The Chix’ inimitable style of upbeat Blues & Soul to the good folk of Coolum. Bring ya dancin shoes!!
