Christine Ohlman and Rebel Montez

FacebookYouTubeArtist Website
This queen of blue-eyed rock n’ soul grew up loving the sweetness of a Memphis horn line and the raunch of an electric guitar riff, whether played by Muddy Waters, Keith Richards, or Pop Staples. She teased her blonde hair into a beehive in honor of Ronnie Spector and never looked back. She’s the current, long-time vocalist with the Saturday Night Live Band.
The Beehive Queen's legendary voice and stage presence have most recently been featured at the 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction in Cleveland (filmed by HBO), the Carnegie Hall tribute to the Rolling Stones, and the 2012 WC Handy Festival (where she was the special guest of the Blind Boys Of Alabama); Bob Dylan’s 30th Anniversary bash at The Garden (with George Harrison, Chrissie Hynde, and others); the Obama Inaugural in Washington, D.C.; The Lincoln Center “American Songbook” series with Sting and Lou Reed; the Central Park Summerstage Tribute To Janis Joplin (where she fronted Big Brother & The Holding Company); and now (thank our lucky stars!) on the intimate stage of Caffe Lena!
“I’ve come here tonight to set your souls on fire,” she’ll tell an audience. And she will.
