What do you get when you combine the rock solid stage presence and sexy voice of Los Angeles burlesque royalty with a young guitar prodigy, an upright bassist with unlimited talent and swagger and a hard charging, shoot to kill drummer? You get blessed by the frenetic, fresh aural and visual powerhouse that is La Cholita and The Kreeps.
It’s doubtful you don’t know the name La Cholita if you’re familiar with burlesque dancing and pin up culture. The first Latina (and most iconic) winner of the extremely coveted Miss Viva La Vegas title, the Latina Queen of Burlesque has performed in every major city across the United States and also Canada, Paris, Belgium, London and Berlin. She has also performed on stage with burlesque goddess Dita Von Teese, joining the superstar herself to represent Los Angeles for her sold out burlesque revue at The Roxy.
La Cholita, the soulful powerhouse in possession of a serious set of pipes capable at any moment of heart-wrenching emotion, machinegun bravado and raw rock star swagger, and The Kreeps, the three-piece fusion bomb of youthful exuberance, innovative sound and switchblade danger, are rocketing to the forefront of the rockabilly, psychobilly, ska, garage and surf rock scenes. La Cholita & The Kreeps have shared the stage with legendary acts like the Nekromantix, been a featured guest on Rebel Radio and received praise from Las Vegas Weekly, The Rebel Yell, and Rock en Hollywood Magazine.The Kreeps didn’t creep onto the scene- they doused velvet ropes in rye whisky, lit a match and kicked in the doors.
Proudly sponsored by T.U.K Footwear, Pinup Girl Clothing and Kreepsville 666 La Cholita & The Kreeps are coming for your hearts, souls and eardrums in an atomic hot rod that spits white-hot fire and howls like a Franken-wolf, crashing through the walls and blowing the roofs off of sold out venues. Don’t miss out on your chance to be energized, vitalized and mesmerized.
