Victoria band CURL brings their mix of blues and dance tunes to Courtenay's Mex Pub this Saturday

Victoria band CURL brings their mix of blues and dance tunes to Courtenay’s Mex Pub this Saturday.

“We’re really pleased to be back at the Mex,” said band spokeswoman Helen Davies. “The last time we were here we had a great time and really enjoyed playing our music for Courtenay blues fans.”

The band has had a particularly good year, with 2013 seeing them add several high-profile gigs to their resumé, including Butchart Gardens in July and the Victoria Blues Bash on the September long weekend.

As well, in 2013 they completed their debut CD, All My Fault, which features a mix of old-school blues and original material.

“We’re really proud of our CD and the feedback from our fans has been 100 per cent positive,” Davies said.

Other venues CURL has performed at this year include headlining at the Canada Day Festival in Sooke and performing at a Friday night showcase at Victoria’s Dragon Boat Festival.

CURL features Davies on vocals and guitar, Dee Cooper on keyboards, Susan Johnson on bass and Christa Rossner on drums.

Davies sings in the style of Janis Joplin, Etta James and Aretha Franklin.

CURL’s CD will be officially launched in November, but preliminary copies are available online and from band members.
