There’s no better way to celebrate women’s history month than to pay homage to the great women singers of our time. That’s exactly what you’ll get at Bar Nancy in Miami on Wednesday, March 23rd @ 9:00 PM — 10:30 PM as rising rockers The Collektives step on stage for a fun, inspiring, specially curated Wonder Woman Wednesday show.
Collektives Front Singer Tatiana Blades who composed the setlist said it was very important to her to recognize women singers:
‘As a woman and a musician, I feel it’s both important and necessary to recognize women in all industries (especially one as brutal and male lead as the entertainment industry). With respect to the event “Wonder Woman Wednesday” AND it being women's history month, I thought it ideal to create a setlist highlighting strong women in music (that made their music, their way) and as a result, shattered glass ceilings.’
South Florida Soul Singer Cynn Sage will open for the Collektives at 8:30 PM. At 9:00 PM the Collektives live show will feature a setlist comprised of great female musicians now and in the past. Blades gave us a rundown of some of the featured songs the band will perform and offered a little history of each:
“You Oughta Know” signaled Morissette’s departure from bubblegum pop to alterntive rock and features guitarist Dave Navarro and bassist Flea of Red Hot Chili Peppers. It outperformed the label’s expectations and received positive reviews. After the influential Los Angeles modern rock radio station KROQ-FM began playing it, the single reached the top ten in Canada, Australia, and the United States. It was a multiformat hit in several US genre charts and made the top 40 in Belgium, Iceland, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. (Wikipedia)
“Muddy Waters “was performed and written by LP, one of the newest indie rock singers and songwriters signed in 2011. First established in the music scene as a writer for Rihanna and Leona Lewis, she is known as a “bloodletter of emotion.” Mostly known for her powerful voice and impressive whistling skills.(wikipedia)
“Who Will Save Your Soul” is a song written and performed by American singer-songwriter Jewel. She wrote the song when she was 16yrs old & it was that song that gained the attention of a music executive that found her in a coffee shop and was her first song released AND a hit.(Wikipedia)
“Zombie” is a protest song by Irish alternative rock band the Cranberries, written by the band’s lead singer Dolores O’Riordan in memory of Johnathan Ball and Tim Parry, who were killed in the 1993 Warrington bombings. It was released on 19 September 1994 as the lead single from their second studio album, No Need to Argue, two weeks ahead of the album’s release. Music critics have long recognized “Zombie” as “a masterpiece of alternative rock.”(Wikipedia)
The Collektives invites music fans to come and experience an alternative, acoustic vibe as they celebrate modern ladies in blues and rock, bring the funk and energy and rock their best anthems. Oh and Blades said to be ready for a few lit surprises!
