Christine Ohlman and Rebel Montez in a concert/dance party

PUTNEY — Next Stage Arts Project is set to bring Christine Ohlman and Rebel Montez back to Putney for an all-out rock n' soul concert/dance party on Feb. 10, at 7:30 p.m. This dance party will feature the expanded and improved Next Stage dance floor and lighting, part of major recent renovations.

Known as "The Beehive Queen" for her outrageous, mile-high hairdo, Christine is the current, long-time vocalist with the Saturday Night Live Band. Voted #7 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. 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, available at, Turn It Up in Brattleboro, or the Putney Coop, or $20 at the door, 15 Kimball Hill. For more information, contact Next Stage Arts at 802-387-0102 or
