New double bass gal Leila Renault, Guitarist extraordinaire Hugo Marcus, and original Velvette drummer Nadia Madaoui-Pamies got together on a last minute whim to rehearse our set in front of people. The response was astonishingly positive. We are discussing turning the event into a residency for Eloha & The Velvettes. Nothing is signed yet but the people involved are eager to meke it a reality… Watch out for some major news very soon….
Here are a few videos from this amazing year:

These last months have been so incredible! I am expecting a baby son in January, very inspiring stuff. Then my dads, (Yes I have two daddies, a homosexual couple who’s been together 35 years, who finally got married. Of course I spoke about my years of struggling for THEIR right to love and equal rights… I’ve always believed that blaming a gay for being gay is as stupid as blaming a cat for being a cat… Ga men are now the examples we strive to emulate, they have style, and sex appeal. Most women wish their man would look like their gay best friend…
Anyway, I sang at that wedding, of course, then Hugo marcus and I started rehearsing and recording demos for the Velvettes project. Nadia is still our drummer and we just auditionned a great gal named Leila Renault on doublebass… We can’t wait to get in front of our next Parisian crowd to feel the response… It should be orgasmic!
