- All Ages!
Comin' off of a hot night at the NEW Backcountry Ballroom located in the Sports Center at Bolton Valley, we're looking forward to another big night! Join us in the HIGHEST (in elevation) Ballroom in Vermont! This time, the ladies of Steady Betty will keep the crowd movin' and groovin' all night long. The earlier you grab your tickets, the better!
Steady Betty is a 8-piece "all-star…rocksteady band" (Seven Days). The band pays homage to the classic late-1960s sounds of Jamaica. Rocksteady is a danceable, soulful successor to ska, and the roots of the reggae genre. Steady Betty showcases Vermont-based lady musicians — Miriam Bernardo (lead vocal), Linda Bassick (guitar, Mellow Yellow), Caroline O'Connor (bass, Vedora), Meghan Waterhouse (tenor sax), Allison Frazier (bari sax, Shakedown),Zoe Harris (alto sax), Margot Van Horne (trumpet), Rachel Capobianco (vocals, drums). When the moons align, Kat Wright (KW & The Indomitable Should Band) joins us on vocals.
Steady Betty's Vermont shows have drawn dance-happy capacity crowds and enthusiasm from local press: “a stellar group of Vermont musicians ...cool rocksteady tunes” (Brent Hallenbeck, Burlington Free Press); “Steady Betty... are quickly rising among the ranks of my favorite local acts” (Dan Bolles, 7Days).
