Summer is heating up with great shows and big news…


MAUREEN & THE MERCURY 5

WE JUST SIGNED A RECORD DEAL! Tony Valenziano will produce our cool new tunes for Swingtone Records, a subsidiary of Universal Music Group. On traditional vinyl as well as CD, the tunes will also be available on Spotify, Pandora, Itunes, Amazon and Rhapsody, among others.

Tony, now partnered with Bill Walker of Thump Records, started Swingtone in 1995. The label is primed for the return of Rockabilly that has been forged by Imelda May, Brian Setzer and Wanda Jackson/Jack White. Swingtone is also releasing a compilation including not only M&M5, but L.A. Rockabilly all-stars Crown City Bombers, Brian Hogan and Switchblade 3, among others.

In this crazy music biz we sometimes need to think outside the box. You can play a great and IMPORTANT role! We need to build a fan base of 3,000 people in order to launch a Pledge Music Campaign to help with promotional, recording and touring costs. (more info regarding this campaign coming soon!) At this time, we only need you to do one thing: PLEASE GO TO www.facebook.com/maureenandthemercury5 and press the LIKE button. Our goal is 3000 by August 15, 2014. We’re already at 1000, and each person who clicks on 1100, 1200, 1300 etc…will be our guest at an exclusive, LIVE CONCERT/CD Preview Pizza Party with the band!

The new CD features songs by Maureen’s friends Pamela Phillips Oland (Aretha Franklin, Frank Sinatra, Selena, Reba McIntyre, etc) and RJ Comer (Dancehall Pimps Lead Singer, recently in concert with Cherry Poppin’ Daddies) as well as co-writes with M&M 5’s own Steve, Sylvain, Scott & Tommy and Flutterby Adam Daniel!  You’ll get to hear some of these songs at our upcoming gigs….speaking of which…..

SECRET SIDESHOWS

Saturday, July 14th, 2012

Hey Flutterbies Fans, Friends & Family – we’ve been playing back-to-back concerts with our alter-egos MAUREEN & THE MERCURY 5. It’s a Jump Swing Rockabilly Thang! Think Brian Setzer meets Ann Margret…Maureen Davis on vocals, Adam Daniel on harmonies, Steve Whalen on Bass and Kats Konecky on drums, we’ve been rockin’ this town inside out with growly guitarists like Eitaro Sako (Phat Cat Swinger, Lil Mo & The Dynaflos) on Gretsch and Peter Kavanaugh on classic Telecaster. In May, we played to thousands at the LA Arthritis Walk on the Santa Monica Pier and the West Coast BBQ Classic at the Queen Mary. July 4th we packed the Queen’s Salon on the Queen Mary with musical fireworks of our own!

Phat Cat Swinger frontman Douglas “The Crooner” Roegiers has been guest starring, adding his own Rat Pat style to Maureen’s Hot Rod steam…The set list features 50’s classics plus a few new retro-originals for good measure. Joining us are dance pals, THE HOLLYWOOD HOTSHOTS — Lindy Hopping, jumping over tables and flying through the air. They have been featured in Gloria Estefan’s “Hotel Nacional” and Foster the People’s “Houdini” videos as well as the 2012 Superbowl Budweiser commercial.

Though we might mention MAUREEN & THE MERCURY 5 from time to time, we don’t want to intrude. If you’d like to be on the MAUREEN & THE MERCURY 5 mailing list, please click this link: MAUREEN & THE MERCURY 5

We’d love to see you at one of our upcoming shows!! We’re playing at Rusty’s Lindy By the Sea in Playa Del Rey, Hip Kitty Jazz & Fondue in Claremont and most notably, every Saturday night in the Queen Mary Observation Bar, July 21 through October 6th! Whadaya say? All the cool kids will be there….you’re gonna drive too fast and dance all night….all dates and details on the M&M 5 website.

Flutterby Maureen in Star-Studded CATS FOR CATS

Maureen performed in this re-imagining of the musical CATS at the Orpheum Theatre, Saturday, July 14, 2012. Fred Willard headed up the cast as TS Eliot with Owain Yeoman (The Mentalist), Bethany Joy Lenz (One Tree Hill), Keith David (Princess & the Frog), Alicia Witt (Friday Night Lights), Janel Parrish & Brendan Robinson (Pretty Little Liars), Ioan Gruffudd (Ringer), Naturi Naughton (FAME), Todd Lowe (True Blood), the SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE DANCERS, special guest Carrie Ann Inaba and more!
