Gentlemen Apparently DO prefer Blondes...
Last night I went to see my friends, Bligh Voth and Weslie Woodley in their cabaret debut, "Blonde Ambish" at the Kennedy Center's Millenium Stage.
The show was fantastic, as I knew it would be, and the chemistry that the girls have is fantastic! Their blend in such songs as "Casting Call" or "I Will Never Leave You" was so good that it sounded like one voice having a duet with itself. Their tonality and phrasing is so similar, that whenever the girls sang together, it was truly wonderful. And their solo numbers were a treat as well. Bligh gets quite a bit of respect from me for singing "Making Love Alone" at the Kennedy Center. lol.
Weslie's "Girl in 14G" is quite a tour de force as well, ranging in many different musical styles.
The show was packed, and the girls really were amazing. I think that this is the beginning of a cabaret duo that we will see much more of in the future. I mean; you do the math - two gorgeous blonde gfirls who are amazingly talented and sing their faces off...book them now!
After the show was done, we dropped by what was to be a surprise birthday party for Erin Driscoll. And when I walked up the stairs, I saw this cake and did a double take...
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Erin Driscoll and James Gardiner are engaged!!!
It became quite the happy celebration with all of their family and friends gathered around them. I am ridiculously happy for both of them and wish them all of the happiness that they truly deserve.
So yesterday was QUITE the fantastic day. Even more fantastic if you were any of the three blonde girls mentioned in this post, though.
Congrats to all!
