Harmony and humour come together with The Bettys, a jazzy, sassy girl trio whose engaging, high-energy sets cover the decades, from 1920s to modern-day hits. This Toronto based vocal trio escorts their audiences through the decades, bringing close harmony into the modern age. Glammed out in fabulous era-themed attire, Lisette St. Louis, Patty Pedersen and Kayla Ramu get their “sister act” on with inspired arrangements and theatrics that commemorate musical time ... a classy Puttin’ On The Ritz, jitter-bugging Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy or rocking a sultry Dude Looks Like a Lady by Aerosmith.
With a talented four-piece band accompaniment (heck, the drummer tap dances!), the act customizes its musical riffs on jazz, swing, Motown and classic rock for generational appeal. The group debuted on the Toronto music scene in early 2010 and since then, their many performances have been well received by diverse audiences internationally.
With repertoire ranging from the 20’s to the 60’s, what really makes The Bettys stand out is their show stopping re-workings of modern pop songs. Crowd favourites indeed! An evening with The Bettys is sultry, hilarious and unforgettable!
This exciting new trio of Canadian musicians presents a program of music dedicated to everybody’s favourite season - Spring! Music by Michel Legrand, Billy Strayhorn, Claude Debussy and many others will be featured in a style between jazz, classical, and everything else. Featuring London-born Andrew Downing on bass, MIchael Davidson on vibes and Aline Homzy on violin, this newborn trio brings together a myriad of genres into one intriguing hybrid you won't want to miss!
