The Darling Stilettos redefines chick rock!
Eschewing trickly-sweet bubblegum pop in favor of rock n’ roll, TDS offer pure entertainment, combining musical lyricism with skilled, high-energy dance. Shows across the country, and especially in Los Angeles and Las Vegas, offer old-school rock (think Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Joan Jett) with a modern “twist” – of both sound and body.
The all-girl troupe of Dylan, Nico, Harley, Jagger and Sid bring years of musical and classical dance training to the stage, further fueled by the percussion of legendary Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver drummer Matt Sorum.
Conceived by Sorum and original member Ace Harper in 2006, TDS took shape over the past 7 years. Anthemic rock evolved to classic choruses punctuated by sub bass and electronics to produce a unique and hypnotic sound.
The Darling Stilettos have entertained thousands at high-profile events, including the Indy 500, John Varvatos, Hard Rock Vegas, L.A.’s Viper Room, and supported all-star jam band Camp Freddy at two month-long sold out Roxy residences. Today, Producers Sorum and Tina Cookson, in association with L.A. choreographer/director Jennifer Hamilton, continue to guide The Darling Stilettos through performances at local and national venues.
Hamilton adds her own vision to the show, showcasing the group’s dance talents with organic, kinetic moves attuned to the the rock n’ roll vibe. She has extensive choreography expertise in film, television and live stage shows – proving a perfect complement to The Darling Stilettos.
As evidenced by their diverse backgrounds, each member offers something different to performances, lending to a visually arresting show peppered with original songs like “Rock N’ Roll A-Go-Go” and “So Rock N’ Roll” and the collaboration with Paul Oakenfold for a new twist on Joan Jett’s, “Do You Wanna Touch”. Audiences have come to expect empowered female voices infused with sublime, infectious dance moves – a flawless combination for a night of fun, unadulterated entertainment.
