Téa and Cupcakes

Téa Petrovic, Sorry Buttons and Chersea at The Backstage Lounge, June 15, 2013.

I had no idea what to expect when I headed to the Backstage Lounge last Friday night for an evening of live music and Long Island Iced Teas. I came in a curious foreigner, but left, an ecstatic fan, with three brand new favourites: Chersea, Sorry Buttons, and Téa Petrovic. I was blown away by the distinct and powerful vocals and all of the fierce female talent of the night.

Due to technical difficulties and late starts all around, it was nearly midnight by the time the feature of the night, Téa and her band hit the stage, but their performance was well worth the wait. Téa rocked a t-shirt that read “Bitch, don’t kill my vibe”, but as soon as she started performing, the shirt quickly became ironic. It was obvious to me that the seductive and soulful vibe Téa creates with her powerful vocals and intriguing melodies is truly timeless and indestructible. It’s the kind of vibe I couldn’t possibly describe adequately because it is born from the kind of inspired performance you have to see live to believe.

Her backup singers both had unique and complementary voices, echoing and harmonizing with perfect pitch. Téa herself has the most incredible, strong, textured vocals – she literally gave me the chills. Me and everybody else! The crowd at the Backstage Lounge went crazy for Téa. Everyone was cheering and dancing and singing along. Even those of us who did not know Téa’s music before the show had picked up a chorus or two along the way. When I left at the end of the night, I found myself humming her song “Millionaires” all the way home. I am amazed by the catchiness of her melodies and the intricate stories that unfold in all of her songs. The combination of Téa Petrovic, Chersea, Sorry Buttons and, of course, the complimentary cupcakes, made for a hell of a show.
