BRATTLEBORO- Next Stage Arts Project is thrilled to bring Christine Ohlman & Rebel Montez back for an all-out rock ‘n’ soul concert-dance party on Saturday, January 7, at 7:30 pm, at Next Stage. This dance party will feature the expanded and improved Next Stage dance floor and lighting that is part of major renovations now completed.

Known as “The Beehive Queen” for her outrageous, mile-high hairdo, Ohlman is the current, long-time vocalist with the Saturday Night Live Band. Voted seventh 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. She teased her blonde hair into a beehive in honor of Ronnie Spector and never looked back, picking up a guitar and forging a career as a songwriter in the process.

Tickets are $18 in advance, general admission, $20 at the door, available online at:, Turn It Up in Brattleboro or the Putney Coop. For more information contact Next Stage Arts at (802) 387-0102, email or

Next Stage Arts is located at 15 Kimball Hill. For more information visit
