Like a Texas-California combo plate, the
BlueBonnets serve up a set of glamorous glitter blues rock
complimented with layered girl group harmonies. There is a
rough garage band energy to the songs, songs that are held
together by tight arrangements and stylistic guitar interplay,
solid grooves, and unforgettable melodies. The band formed
in 2007, as a restructuring of a former line-up that began in Los
Angeles in the 90's. When Kathy Valentine returned to live
in her home town of Austin, she decided the city was the perfect
place to re-introduce the band that she and Dominique Davalos had
conceived when they first began their long musical partnership.
The BlueBonnets put a feminine slant on on blues based rock n roll
yet cannot fall neatly into any musical category. They have
been chosen to share the bill with the royalty of Austin's music
scene: Arc Angels, Bob Schneider, the Scabs, Jimmie Vaughan, Guy
Forsythe, Storyville, Lou Anne Barton, and Carolyn Wonderland
amongst many others. In 2010 the BlueBonnets will release
their first ever CD and are surely set to be one of the star
jewels in Austin's musical crown.
Guitarists/vocalists Eve Monsees and Kathy Valentine live in
Austin, Texas while drummer Kristy McInnis commutes from Hollywood
for rehearsals, recording and scheduled gigs. Bassist and
lead vocalist Dominique Davalos splits her time between Los
Angeles and Austin.
