The Dress-Ups

Choral quirk-pop quintet the Dress-Ups sings original songs written by lead vocalist Julie Beman. Julie is joined by singers Allison Holst-Grubbe and Caresse Amenta. Allison plays the piano and Caresse plays glockenspiel and various shaken and jangling things. Rich Germain plays drums and Dave Mourad plays bass. With songs described as psychedelic, brave, magical and weird, the Dress-Ups’ intricate vocal harmonies pull listeners into an alternate past.
