What to Expect
Miss Clairol and the Cocktail Weenies are professionals. We will setup smoothy and quickly without any drama. We can perform amplified or unplugged, and we have all the gear we might need. Our specialty is acoustic covers in a variety of genres.
If you ask Miss Clairol, she’ll tell you that Miss Clairol & The Cocktail Weenies play “relationship songs”. This is very true and a fine way to begin describing what the Weenies do. To expand a bit, MCCW interprets various American music traditions (country, folk, bluegrass, rock, jazz…) to bring you songs about real people. The Weenies trade off lead vocals and background harmonies, and strong musicianship on multiple instruments completes the unique Weenies sound.
All three members have long histories of performing in professional musical ventures. Missy (Miss Clairol - vocals, percussion) draws on her musical theatre and church music background to lend her expressive voice to torch songs, folk songs, and the blues. Greg (Spicy Weenie - guitar, bass, harmonica) returns to the stage after a brief hiatus from performing to provide soulful lead vocals, soaring harmonies and sweet guitar licks. Wayne (Big Weenie - guitar, bass, mandolin) contributes fingerstyle and flatpicked guitar as well as funbling through the occasional mandolin break.
Miss Clairol & The Cocktail Weenies want to bring the joy and fun of music to your winery, brewery, restaurant, neighborhood festival, pig roast, or bacchanalia.
