TEMPTRESS, ONCE THOUGHT TO BE RETIRED TO SWITZERLAND TO LIVE IN SECLUSION IS BACK . . . WITH A VENGEANCE!
Promising more outrageous performances, and boasting a surgically improved lead singer, the band is back and still tighter than the lead singer’s new butt …
Temptress is the ultimate pop/punk party band. Songs are sarcasticly fun, full of killer hooks, raunchy laughs, and ultimately upbeat. Temptress songs are pure pop/punk/prostitute pleasures with a hook, you can’t get the chorus out of your head — whether you like it or not (your latest guilty pleasure). The audience is invited to pleasingly participate, cheerfully sing along, or simply stand back and watch the insanity.
One reviewer stated it perfectly, “This show is the very best of bad ‘tongue-in-someone’s-cheek’ taste. Novelty doesn’t get much more novel than this. Be brave, and bring your friends.”
In addition to vocalist/guitarist “Temptress”, the band features lead guitarist Bob Valderrama, bassist Frank Malabe and drummer Ed Torres. To support the visual show Temptress fronts with two sexy go-go dancer/backing vocalist she refers to as the “Nasty Habits,” helping visualize the music with multiple costume changes and choreographed dance skits.
Temptress has come a long way since their Halloween debut in a Boston nightclub, (we asked for a date Temptress refuses to date herself). They once held the World’s Record for playing before the most people in a single day, resulting from a series of 42 live shows in front of over 2.6 Million New Yorkers on Halloween. They literally stopped traffic on the streets between appearances on Howard Stern, Regis and Kathy Lee, and their triumphant performance at the Village Halloween Parade which has become a tantalizing annual NYC Temptress tradition.
Temptress has performed at most of world renowned events or “parties you must attend before you die”, like The Exotic Erotic Ball (San Francisco), Folsom Street Fair (San Francisco), Fantasy Fest (Key West), Las Vegas Fetish Ball, Adult Video News Awards, Playboy Mansion (Los Angeles) South by Southwest Music (Austin, TX), North by Northeast Music (Toronto, Ont), and even large corporate events for companies like Nike, Budweiser, AT&T and Pepsi.
Lead singer “Temptress” understands well the secrets of the bands’ success. “Before we were just musicians. Now we’re in show business.
“Temptress brings rock back to its roots — driving, powerful, fun party music with a show that kicks ass —literally”, said Temptress.
Temptress has been seen on virtually every talk show there is, from Sally to Jenny Jones to Howard Stern. And remarkably, she’s one of the few guests that Jerry Springer didn’t sleep with.
When asked of future plans, Temptress responded with . “I think then I’ll design my own line of Temptress fashions, makeup, surgical procedures and pet products”
Now there’s a marketing angle.
