Much of our work takes place before the event even starts. Our methods are to actively consult with our clients to ensure that they receive the right entertainment for their event. Once we find the right entertainment we facilitate a series of communications, which begins with a minimum of one face-to-face meeting with the client, the entertainer, and us if possible. Lines of communication in the form of phone calls and emails are always open up till the moment of the event.
The CHICKAdivas found each other in a "cosmic event" in April 2002 - a classified ad wanting female singers to form an a cappella group. Two singers grew to five over the years, to accommodate more dynamic and interesting harmonies. We have performed at fundraisers, community, private, and corporate events in Edmonton and around Alberta, and written and recorded corporate jingles.corporate jingles.
One of our greatest achievements is winning the a cappella competition Northern Harmony 2003 ( A generous prize donation from MEHCo Inc. enabled us to record our first CD. "CHICK Us Out!", was released in 2004 at Festival Place in Sherwood Park to a sold-out house. There were strong indications that we had finally hit the big time: 1) there were scalpers selling tickets at the door; 2) the sound system blew up - our first true "smoke 'n' light show"; 3) we had men's underwear thrown at us - move over Tom Jones, here come the CHICKS!
The Copley Cats began in 1985 by a group of Mount Holyoke graduates who missed the close harmony singing they had in college as members of the V-8s, the oldest collegiate women's a cappella group in the country. Through auditions, the Copley Cats have expanded to encompass many women of different backgrounds and experiences. The current Copley Cats include professionals, graduate students, and stay-at-home moms.
Copper Wimmin are three obstreperous young women who set audiences on fire with their brilliant lyrics, haunting voices and fierce harmonies. They create a sacred hurricane of sound which leaves their audiences spellbound and often, in tears. Creating a buzz wherever they go, these vocal amazons have been singing together since they were twelve years old. They have evolved a sound so moving, so pure, that upon hearing them many recall a collective memory in which women sang together in caves and cathedrals before time began.
Copper Wimmin are a sonic epiphany. They weave their voices together so expertly that it is hard to know where one voice ends and the other begins. The combined impact of the arrangements, lyrical content and outrageous stage presence is that of a sublime sledgehammer effortlessly crashing through the door that separates the soulless from the sacred. Also appearing on the Bay Area Regionals stage in 1999, they were also finalists in the Lilith Fair talent search.
