Zin­fin­belles to de­but in Down­town Lodi tonight

Lodi News-Sentinel - - PANORAMA: WEEKENDER -

The Zin­fin­belles, a new, all-fe­male mu­sic project, will make their de­but dur­ing tonight’s Down­town Lodi Farm­ers Mar­ket in­side Scotto’s Wine & Cider.

While it’s their first time per­form­ing to­gether, this is not the first time mem­bers of The Zin­fin­belles have per­formed at this venue. In fact, they have all per­formed at Scotto’s dozens of times solo or as parts of other acts.

But Jes­sica Cle­ments (vo­cals/key­boards), Kelly Fry (vo­cals/gui­tar) and Chris­tine Taun­ton (vo­cals/gui­tar/bass) have been mu­sic friends for sev­eral years, join­ing each other on stage for spe­cial guest ap­pear­ances.

“Kelly, Chris­tine and I en­joy all gen­res of mu­sic and love putting our cre­ative touches on each song,” Cle­ments said. “It’s a treat to play and sing with not only ta­lented mu­si­cians, but great friends!”

In ad­di­tion to the Zin­fin­belles, with Cle­ments and Fry per­form in the band Fish n’ Chicks, and Taun­ton is a co

founder of the band The Sweet Taunts. Taun­ton and Cle­ments also per­form in the trib­ute band Mys­tic Moon — A Fleet­wood Mac/Ste­vie Nicks Ex­pe­ri­ence.

“Per­form­ing with Jes­sica and Chris­tine al­lows me to be cre­ative and find a shared vi­sion to make each song unique,” Fry said. “I’m also ex­cited to per­form some of my orig­i­nal songs as a fe­male trio and bring my per­sonal sto­ries to life in a new way.”

In this new side project, the trio will per­form to­gether to show­case their tal­ents as women rock mu­si­cians.

Each of The Zin­fin­belles brings some­thing dif­fer­ent to the group both vo­cally and mu­si­cally, serv­ing up three-part har­monies with in­flu­ences in­clud­ing Linda Perry, Natalie Mer­chant and Linda Ron­stadt.

“This mu­sic col­lab­o­ra­tion is such a sweet bless­ing and a delight to blend the voices and tal­ents of these beau­ti­ful ladies,” Taun­ton said.

The Zin­fin­belles cover a range of pop, clas­sic rock, and coun­try songs from the ’70s to cur­rent ra­dio hits by artists like Ste­vie Nicks, the Cran­ber­ries, Katy Perry, Pat Be­natar, Lady Gaga, Meghan Trainor and oth­ers. They also put their own spin on hits by male artists such as Phil Collins, the Bea­tles, Prince, the Rolling Stones and Guns n’ Roses.

True to the spirit of mu­sic kin­ship, The Zin­fin­belles will be joined by spe­cial guests dur­ing their de­but show, spon­sored by Red­heads Rock Pro­duc­tions and Scotto’s Wine & Cider.
