New York Dollies are Brighton-based Li Mills, Heather Urquhart and Kate Holder. Dressed in vintage 50s style with moves to match and accompanied simply by a ukulele, the Dollies sing punk and new wave covers in crazy doo-wop arrangements. The result is unique, unexpected and hilarious. The three met recently when Li, who arranges and directs for Jam Tarts Indie Choir, joined forces with fellow Jam Tart Kate to create a polished act based on new arrangements of her favourite music. Award winning comedian, Heather, of the Maydays and the Treason Show provided the perfect third member particularly after revealing her ukulele playing skills….all three share a love of cake and posh 50s dresses.
REVIEWS AND TESTIMONIALS
“The New York Dollies went down a storm at our wedding…It was raining outside but the Dollies brought the sunshine with their fun and tuneful punk! We couldn’t have asked for a more entertaining group – thank you.”
Emma & Michael Pullman
“The New York Dollies were wonderful, chic and naughty, flirty and fun and brought the temperature of the night up into a swinging party mode. Their warm and melodic reinterpretations of punk classics were touch perfect, heavy on the irony and stuffed full of style. Their costumes and slightly witty banter adding to the glossy performance that shone from the stage. A cheeky, chic and charming harmonising trio of filthy taffeta sheen.”
Seen and enjoyed @NewYorkDollies. Punk classics performed with ukulele, female close-harmonies, fun, wit and clever arrangements. Book ’em.
“An all female punk cover band with a difference. New York Dollies do punk covers in ‘1950s style close harmony’, with a lot of humour thrown in, think of bubble-gum pop with lots of do-be-do-wop, sha-la-la’s and the like. Each song had its own unique style with some of them sounding scarily like they were written that way. They have cleverly found the right mix of styles and hooks to give all the songs the right twist”
