If those voices and the music that accompanies them gets your attention, you may want to check out the Angler's Pub in the Travelodge Silver Bridge in Saturday.

CURL, described as a danceable, energetic mix of blues-based and R&B, might be right down your alley.

"Our lead vocalist has the chops to blow the doors off," drummer  Christa Rossner said.

Hot off the 2013 release of their first CD, All My Fault, CURL also features Helen Davies (vocals and guitar); Dee Cooper (keyboards) and Susan Johnson (bass).

Davies is a former member of classic rock band Rukus, pop band The Voodoo Slaves, eight-piece R&B band, Davy's Gang and blues-rock quartet Canadian Bandwagon

Cooper formed the jazz fusion group, Spaces, which played original music at festivals and clubs all around Ontario. After moving west in 1992, she joined cover band Loose Change, then blues band AMP'D.

Johnson has studied bass with teachers as diverse as Russell Jackson (former bassist for B.B. King) and Gary Kendall of the Downchild Blues Band.

Rossner has studied with Bill Hicks (drums, David Gogo), Donald Johnson (drums), Damian Graham (drums, the Sutcliffes).

The music starts at 9:30 p.m. There is a $5 cover charge.
