The Jivin' Belles
Edmonton-based singers:Emily Guthrie, Kate Blechinger, and Mallory Chipman formed the Belles in 2013 when the three girls were gushing over the sounds of the iconic 1940s group, The Andrews Sisters, and thought, "why don't we do this?" After all, they were three girls who adored singing with one another and had soft spots for vintage - it seemed like the perfect fit!
Inspired by the sounds of The Andrews Sisters, The Boswell Sisters, Bing Crosby, The King Sisters, and The Puppini Sisters, The Jivin' Belles promise to evoke a familiar yet original sound, tinged with nostalgia and fuelled with passion.
They specialize in swing era favourites and unique arrangements of modern pop tunes. They have played a number of swing dances; charity concerts, for organizations such as the Edmonton Human Society and the Youth Empowerment Services Society; private events; and they also perform at all of the Vixens of Vintage Markets in Edmonton and Calgary.
