Women’s Quartet To Play Camp Street

CROCKETT – Blame Sally will be at Camp Street Café in Crockett on Friday, Oct. 16 for the Texas CD release of their new album, Night of 1000 Stars.
Blame Sally is a San Francisco based, all female, folk/pop group that is riding high after just coming off a successful Northwest Tour just a few months after selling out the 1000 seat Palace of Fine Arts and sharing a bill with Joan Baez at the Stern Grove Festival.

In a time of economic downturn, this group is rising like a shooting star, landing themselves a one-of-a-kind, five year-three album contract worth half-a-million bucks!

In a music scene where youth seems to rule, this California quartet of middle-aged female rockers have been pre-nominated for a Grammy, by the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences for “Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals” for the song “All Rise” (Position No.1); Best contemporary folk Album” for “Night of 1000 Stars.”

Forged nine years ago, by friendship and a deep-seated love of music, their group is a melting-pot of four distinct voices and musical backgrounds that delivers a delicious smorgasbord of original folk pop that plays on the “indie edges of Americana.”
Blame Sally uses personal and topical issues to fuel their powerful songwriting and musicianship. On the album you’ll find songs about an Afghan war veteran, a cancer survivor finding some humor in new age bromides or a woman who’s passion comes on like a summer thunderstorm. The group notes, “We are very passionate about our music, sometimes our songs are about our lives and what we are experience and some contain our own political venues, but nobody’s apologizing for that,” They add, “We are what we sing. The audience relates to that. They feel what we feel.”
Pamela Delgado, Jeri Jones, Renee Harcourt and Monica Pasqual began Blame Sally in 2000.

“Our group originally started out as a friendship with us playing together for fun,” band members admit. “Monica Pasqual was putting together a group for a CD released and contacted the rest of the group. We all knew each other already and had played together before. We all had solo as well as other group projects going on, but we wanted to be able to play together and write music without any consideration of commercial interests. It was a group collaboration from the beginning with everyone was going to pitch in songs and singing. Our success has happened because of the connection that we all share.”

With a fusion sound of rock, pop, jazz, classical, R&B and country and western, the music of Blame Sally is the very thread of sisterhood. It holds your hand when you are down-and-out and lifts you up to let you soar above the clouds. It is ‘I-am-woman-hear-me-roar’ but homey and nurturing — covering the gamut of the feminine mystique all at the same time. They are funny, sassy and extremely talented. The have been likened to the Indigo Girls and the Dixie Chicks.
Blame Sally members said, “At our concerts you will laugh, cry and hear some really great music. By the time it is over you will feel like you know us, like we are old friends,” and note, “We are super supportive of each other. We are not competitive in any way. We enjoy playing together and celebrate the success and camaraderie of the group.”
Blame Sally is touring non-stop, with U.S. and European dates booked through the end of the year. Crockett is one of only two dates they have booked in the state of Texas, so you don’t want to miss this show!
