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’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.

Come Alive, Cartoon Network, and Cats

Monday, August 1st, 2011

Hey Flutterbies fans, welcome to our August newsletter… Keywords this month: Come Alive, Cartoon Network, and Cats!

Come Alive

We have a new single for you this month, and it’s debuting with a bang! Our track "Come Alive" will be featured on the Adult Swim/Cartoon Network show Children’s Hospital August 11 at midnight (so that’s actually August 12, technically). They’ve taken our sweet romantic ballad and made it extremely funny, and we love that… The show boasts an ensemble cast with serious star power: Rob Corddry, Megan Mullally, Henry Winkler, and Erinn Hayes. Flashback: Maureen shared an early career dressing room with Erinn at Disneyland. Erinn was there for sketch comedy, and Maureen was making music.

We couldn’t be more thrilled to be checked into Children’s Hospital!

"Come Alive" is the first song Maureen and co-conspirator Adam Daniel wrote for The Flutterbies. An alt-country duet about the thrill ride of falling in love, the track has been a live favorite for some time now, and was even performed at a fan’s wedding! It’s available now at iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby, etc. Click the cover art below for a streaming sample and direct links to purchase.

Cats for Cats

Also this month, Flutterby Maureen will appear in the concert Cats for Cats Saturday August 6 at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles, CA. Another impressive cast here includes Fred Willard, Mindy Sterling (from Austin Powers and The Flutterbies "How I Get Over you" music video), Jean Louisa Kelly (from Yes Dear and also another of Maureen’s early career compatriots, from Into the Woods on Broadway), Mandy Moore and this year’s So You Think You Can Dance finalists! All proceeds benefit Kitty Bungalow, a local nonprofit saving stray cats and kittens. Click here for tickets, and use the promo code "friends" and get 50% off!
