Dressy Bessy was one of the first Denver bands I followed when we moved here in the 90s. Their infectious mixture of pop, rock and punk was (and still is) intoxicating. The band has been playing again lately, with a new album too, much to the delight of our local music scene. The show at Hi-Dive this month included Wheelchair Sports Camp and SPELLS, so it was pretty much a dream lineup. Kalyn Heffernan, the emcee for Wheelchair Sports Camp, is mesmerizing while trumpeter Joshua Trinidad blasts along next to her. And SPELLS? They are their own force to be reckoned with – as I have written about before.
Dressy Bessy will be playing Boise’s Tree Fort Music Festival in March and promises more shows in 2017. You betcha we can’t wait.
