“Laugh Out Loud A Cappella” – Claire Shipman, National Correspondent for Good Morning America.
The galaxy’s favorite women’s octet, Venus d Minor brings audiences widely varied a cappella fare–from Richard Rodgers and Irving Berlin to The Monkees and Bonnie Raitt. Their latest album “Digital Redemption,” available on iTunes, Amazon and CDBaby, includes pop and rock arrangements, while their first album “Give the Girls a Hand” focuses on jazz standards. The group was originally founded in 1987 as The Winettes, and included Robin Sloan and Dolores McDonagh who still sing in Venus. We don’t know if this makes them loyal or just plain crazy.
Known for putting humorous lyrics to classic tunes, Venus brings its unique sound and brand of humor to audiences throughout the Washington, D.C. area, including Strathmore Hall, The Kennedy Center, The Birchmere, Lisner Auditorium, George Mason University, Glen Echo Park, and Jammin’ Java.
By day, the women of Venus do classic inside-the-Beltway things for non-profits, government agencies, Fortune 500’s, small businesses, and consulting firms. But together, with their multi-part arrangements and the occasional glass of sauv blanc in hand, they serve up some of the best a cappella fare in town.
