Rockers In Recovery
Christine Ohlman Sunday Night June 5th at 7:00PM EST will be our guest on Rocker In Recovery. She’s the current, long-time vocalist with the Saturday Night Live Band.

We will be talking about Christine’s new CD “The DEEP END” and up her coming appearance at the 12 Step Music Fest.

Christine Ohlman is scheduled to play The 4th Annual 12 Step Music Fest which is a campout for ALL 12 step fellowships. It will be held November 3-6, 2011 at Sugarloaf Key (mile marker 20) KOA Campground in the Florida Keys. The entire campground will be closed to the public.

The heart of Christine Ohlman has belonged to rock n’ roll from just about the moment she could walk and talk. By the time she traveled from Boston to New York on an overnight train to make her first record at the age of 16, writing the “B” side on the way to the studio, she was already a veteran of the local coffeehouse circuit around New Haven, Connecticut.

“The first guy who ever signed me flew down from New York City to hear the band; he signed us the same day,” she says. “We were in the studio practically before we knew what hit us recording a version of Al Kooper’s ‘Wake Me, Shake Me.’ The next thing we knew, we were on the charts and I was in heaven!”

Christine was a founding member of The Scratch Band, legendary throughout the Northeast for their incendiary and eclectic live shows, and her stark, piano-accompanied version of Dusty Springfield’s “I Only Want To Be With You” from their first LP was a turntable hit in the U.K. Beginning in September 1991, a portion of The Scratch Band reunited in the studios of NBC’s Saturday Night Live with Christine joining guitarist/vocalist/musical director G.E. Smith and bassist Paul Ossola, both former Scratch Band members, in the SNL band. At one point, the 11-member group, featuring in its repertoire a heavy dose of Christine’s favorite music—southern soul—took the stage (joined by Ry Cooder, Steve Cropper and Maceo Parker) as the house band for The Rhythm & Blues Foundation Pioneer Awards, a performance that was, in Ohlman’s words, “just about the biggest flat-out thrill of my life. We were doing ‘Tell Mama’ and I looked around to catch Steve Cropper’s eye only to spot Clarence Carter, who wrote the song, standing in the wings waiting to come on. I thought—well, it just doesn’t get much better than this” (although she admits that the 2003 Central Park Summerstage Tribute To Janis Joplin, where she fronted both Big Brother & The Holding Company and the Kozmic Blues Band, and the Bob Dylan 30th Anniversary Tribute Concert, where she sang with George Harrison, among others, edge out everything for sheer historical vibe).

While touring and recording with Christine Ohlman & Rebel Montez are the main focus, Ohlman has other all-star concert appearances to her credit, including the Lincoln Center “American Songbook” Series (with Sting and Lou Reed), the 2009 Obama Inaugural Gala, and Celebrate Brooklyn’s Tribute to Bill Withers (with Nona Hendryx and My Morning Jacket’s Jim James). She continues to perform with the SNL Band, appearing with Al Green on the show’s 25th Anniversary Special and in the hilarious 2010 commercial parody “Carter n’ Sons Barbeque.”
She is a sought-after studio guest vocalist, appearing on Ian Hunter’s Shrunken Heads (named one the Top 20 CDs of 2007 by the New York Daily News), Big Al Anderson’s Pawn Shop Guitars, and two CDs by esteemed Irish punk group Black 47. Labor of Love: The Music Of Nick Lowe features her vocal collaboration with Marshall Crenshaw on Lowe’s “Cruel To Be Kind.” And her commitment to the blues runs deep, as her scorching duets with the legendary Eddie Kirkland on his CD’s Where You Get Your Sugar and Lonely Street; her guest-shots with Charlie Musselwhite on his Grammy-nominated One Night In America; and her appearance on the Songs Of Willie Dixon (with Sonny Landreth & Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown) and Grammy nominee A Tribute To Howlin’ Wolf (with Taj Mahal & Lucinda Williams) give statement.
