The Lovebullies: Chantal Vitalis

Formed out of the ashes of drive-in movie theatres and 57 Cadillacs

Lovebullies' sexy, provocative retro-pop will have you dancing

Mike Redfern

Calgary’s fun-loving retro-pop band, The Lovebullies, will be bringing their sexy, provocative brand of 1950s & 60s music to Kimberley’s Studio 64 on Saturday, March 21. The gals and guys in the Lovebullies have just too much fun on stage and this cabaret-style show in Studio 64 is likely to be a very lively affair.

The Lovebullies, so their bio goes, are “formed out of the ashes of drive-in movie theatres and 57 Cadillacs, bringing 1950s and 60s vintage pop back into the mainstream…..The Lovebullies are here to get you up on your feet and dancing ’til the sun comes up.” Well, not quite that late, perhaps, but you can certainly work up a good head of steam on the dance floor by 10.30 p.m.

The band’s front line of Chantal Vitalis, Joni Brent, and Caroline Connolly, backed by Paul Jahn and Kevin Herring, will have you humming along and dancing to familiar tunes and original songs that somehow sound familiar (that 50s & 60s sound again) until it’s time to go home.

The Lovebullies have three albums out, Swang Swang Swang, Bomp, and When I Get Through With You. They recently opened for the Beach Boys in Calgary and are a regular part of the Calgary concert scene. You can get a taste of their music and style on a number of websites. Just Google Lovebullies.

The show starts at 8 p.m. With smaller tables for 4, the space for dancing in Studio 64 has been increased. A wine & beer bar will be open to slake your thirst and nibblies will help you replace the carbs you dance away. There’s seating for about 80 so you might want to get your tickets early to be sure of one. Advance tickets, available from Centre 64, are $22 for Kimberley Arts Council members, $24 for non-members, or $26 at the door.

The spring concert series at Studio 64 continues on April 21 with bluesman Guy Davis and concludes May 23 with the gypsy blues duo, Blue Moon Marquee. 3-concert series tickets are available for $60 KAC members, $66 non-members. For more information about these upcoming concerts you can call Centre 64 at 250-427-4919.
