Christine Ohlman (a/k/a "The Beehive Queen" for her mile-high platinum-blonde hairdo) is the current, long-time vocalist with NBC's Saturday Night Live Band whose sixth critically-acclaimed CD with Christine Ohlman & Rebel Montez, "The Deep End," was honored on numerous national end-of-year Top Ten lists. She'll be joined onstage by the members of Christine Ohlman & Rebel Montez, acclaimed members of the Massachusetts scene all, including acclaimed Boston-area aces Wolf Ginandes (bass), Cliff Goodwin (guitar-Joe Cocker/Robert Palmer) and Lorne Entress (drums-Lori McKenna and Ronnie Earl & The Broadcasters)
In 2017 Ohlman was inducted into the National Blues Hall of Fame of American Heritage, International. In December 2018 she took part in two days of filming in the Boston area with blues greats from around America for a filmed documentary on the late great bluesman James Cotton. She landed the Top Female Americana Vocalist honors on The Alternate Root's International Readers' Poll (she shares top slots with Paul Thorn, The Mavericks, and Rodney Crowell) and is fresh from appearances onstage in NYC with Bonnie Raitt, Keb Mo, Trombone Shorty, Jon Batiste and Paul Shaffer; at the Paris Conservatory with The Sessions Panel; on the SNL 40th Anniversary broadcast and Post-Broadcast concert at the Plaza Hotel; "The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon;" multiple appearances on the soundtrack for the HBO series "Vinyl," including a duet with Elvis Costello; the Carnegie Hall Tribute To The Rolling Stones; the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Concert in Cleveland (HBO) and The WC Handy Festival in Muscle Shoals, where she's been the special guest of the Blind Boys Of Alabama and led an All-Star Shoals tributes that included Bonnie Bramlett, Candi Staton, and Ed King of Lynyrd Skynyrd. Her numerous studio and live collaborations encompass Grammy-nominated recordings include a longtime onstage collaboration with legendary NRBQ guitarist Big Al Anderson; Charlie Musselwhite; Evenings of Duets with Mac Rebennack (Dr. John); Dion, Ian Hunter, Marshall Crenshaw and the late Levon Helm (all of whom guested on "The Deep End"); plus appearances with Al Green, Steve Miller, Smokey Robinson, Bonnie Raitt, Brian Wilson, Bruce Springsteen, and the late George Harrison. With JoJo Hermann of Widespread Panic, she leads the "Down On The Bayou" New Orleans Jazz and Heritage benefits for the New Orleans Musicians Clinic. She guests on Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and legendary Rolling Stones producer Andrew Loog Oldham's "The ALO Orchestra Sings The Rolling Stones Songbook Vol. 2," named "Coolest Record Of The Year" by SIRIUS/XM's "Little Steven's Underground Garage."
Ohlman is a noted musicologist and record collector who was one of the original contributing editors to the All Music Guide. Mixing a fiery brand of rootsy Americana with an old-school soul music flavor, she serves up a style that's been dubbed by SIRIUS/XM's Dave Marsh "Contemporary Rock R&B." For her live shows, Ohlman will bring to the musical table songs from her six CDs plus 2019's upcoming "The Grown-Up Thing." "I've come here to set your souls on fire," she tells her audiences. And she will.
