The BlueBonnets provide a Texas-California combo plate of glitter blues rock and layered female vocal harmonies.
The earliest manifestation of the group was formed by Austinite and girl band veteran Kathy Valentine (who played bass and guitar for The Go-Gos from 1980 to 2013), quickly morphing into the Delphines with Dominique Davalos on lead vocals and bass. Well after the release of two Delphines albums, Valentine released a debut solo album Light Years in 2005 before reforming the BlueBonnets in the 2007. With the addition of Austinite guitarist Eve Monsees and Hollywood-based drummer Kristy McInnis, the BlueBonnets put a distinctly feminine twist on blues, heavily incorporating their four-part vocal harmonies across other genres as well. In 2010, Valentine produced the BlueBonnets debut album Boom Boom Boom and have since shared the stage with artists like Bob Schneider, Jimmie Vaughan, and Guy Forsythe.
You can catch The BlueBonnets on Friday, November 14th at the Continental Club or stream them right here on KUTX!
