All of the Cello Chix hail from the Boston area. Becca and Susanna, classically-trained cellists, both went to the Oberlin Conservatory, but only really got to know each other a decade later at the party of a mutual friend in Watertown. A fan of hiking and cool acoustics, the friend suggested that the two bring their cellos on a hike and then play some tunes in a ravine. The prospect of turning antiques into kindling didn't thrill the cellists, so instead they decided to start playing duos at friends' parties, getting paid in chocolate and compliments. It was the usual string stuff: Bach, Handel, Mozart. But they also tried out a couple of Susanna's Beatles arrangements. Those were a hit.
Emboldened, the Cello Chix started showing up at Open Mic Night at the Burren, replaced their antique cellos with electric ones, ditched the Mozart, and soon got gigs playing oldies and newbies at bars around town. It was there at Toad, specifically where they met Nancy, a drummer and FOAF. Nancy brings over twenty years of playing and gigging experience plus a certain je ne sais quois to the band. The Cello Chix now have a repertoire of over forty classic rock, jazz, pop and Latin tunes, a loyal and sizeable following, and a CD coming out on February 8, 2008.
