Christine Ohlman & Rebel Montez with the Sin Sisters

Christine Ohlman’s heart has belonged to rock n’ roll from just about the moment she could walk and talk. By the time she traveled from Boston to New York on an overnight train to make her first record at the age of 16, she was already a veteran of the local coffeehouse circuit around New Haven, Connecticut. Known as “The Beehive Queen” for her towering blonde hairdo, this queen of blue-eyed rock n’ soul has been the long-time vocalist with the Saturday Night Live Band for over 28 years. Christine was a founding member of The Scratch Band, legendary throughout the Northeast for their incendiary and eclectic live shows. Ohlman topped the Alternate Root.com’s 2013 Readers’ Poll as top Americana vocalist, and she was inducted into the National Blues Hall of Fame of American Heritage International in 2017. She has recently been heard in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon A Time in Hollywood”. Ohlman tours relentlessly with her band Rebel Montez, torching clubs up and down the Eastern Seaboard in support of her many recordings. With her trademark mile-high platinum beehive hairdo and enviable collection of sequins and rhinestones, Ohlman looks like a lady to be reckoned with, and when she opens her mouth to sing, the truth comes out. But underneath it all lurks a no-frills approach to music.
