"There are short-cuts to happiness, and dancing is one of them."
-- Vicki Baum (1964)
Mind Caviar, Vol. 3 Anniversary Issue, 2002
The first Devil-Ettes performance was put together as a one-time thing; nothing more than an entry in a talent show at a local club. But that one night snowballed, and soon they found themselves performing at nightspots and parties around the city. Their schedule is now about one show a month within the Bay Area, and they’ve performed twice at the Las Vegas Grind, a three-day celebration of 60s retro culture, and the 2001 Tease-O-Rama convention in New Orleans. [Ed. note: I saw them in New Orleans and THEY ROCKED!] In their home town, they have enough of a following to fill the house for two performances when they throw themselves a birthday party.
But although the Devil-Ettes may steer away from emphasizing the individual, that’s far from saying that they’re homogenous. On the contrary, one of the truly wonderful things about watching the Devil-Ettes is how diverse they are in appearance. Almost every bodily shape or size, from impish petiteness to sensuous plumpness is represented somewhere in the makeup of the Devil-Ettes. When they hit the stage at the Roxie, their identical, silver-fringed dresses and plastic devil horns didn’t conceal the women’s different charms, but somehow emphasized and unified them into a greater whole. The impression is not of one woman repeated over and over, but of a large, very human tapestry of form and personality. And each woman, in fact, creates a unique stage persona; one of the first things that distinguishes a Devil-Ette is her stage name. Baby Doe is The Hellcat; her fellow Devil-Ettes include The Catholic School Girl, The Farmer’s Daughter, The Assassin, and The Saucy One.
