I've had a message through from J.B. Flatt, former Dansettes bandleader/organist/songwriter here:
I wanted to give you a heads up that my new Dansettes spinoff project, the Sweet Divines, debuts in Brooklyn two weeks from today. Same old-school soul sound/look, but this time 4 gorgeous and talented female singers. Killer rhythm section as well. Dansettes fans will recognize Jennie (the blonde of "Money Tree" fame) as well a good portion of the setlist, which consists of many of the originals that were staples of the Dansettes live set.
You can download our song "Honeythistle," newly recorded in Brooklyn:
The Sweet Divines are: Pamela Quinn, Ashley Vitha, Jennie Wasserman and Heather Wolfe backd by backed by: J.B. Flatt & the Divine Soul Rhythm Band.
