Christine Ohlman & Rebel Montez return to Next Stage

Tickets are $18 in advance, general admission, $20 at the door, available online at and in person at Turn It Up in Brattleboro, or the Putney Food Co-op.

PUTNEY—Next Stage Arts Project is thrilled to bring Christine Ohlman & Rebel Montez back to Putney by popular demand for an all-out rock ’n’ soul concert/dance party on Saturday, Feb. 10, at 7:30 p.m, at Next Stage, 15 Kimball Hill.

This dance party will feature the expanded and improved Next Stage dance floor and lighting, part of major recent renovations.

Known as “The Beehive Queen” for her outrageous, mile-high hairdo, Ohlman is the current and longtime vocalist with the Saturday Night Live Band.

Voted No. 7 on Alternate Roots’ list of top 30 Female Vocalists, this “queen of blue-eyed rock ’n’ soul grew up loving equally 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,” according to a news release.

With her band Rebel Montez (Michael Colbath, bass; Cliff Goodwin, guitar; Larry Donahue, drums), she tells her audiences “I’ve come here tonight to set your souls on fire.”
