Did you know you can stream a cappella music ALL DAY LONG via Acaville Radio? We didn’t, until they called us to come to their travelling studio for an interview and some songs. You can hear us on The Spotlight on Tuesday, May 5th at 9pm Eastern/6pm Pacific on the Acaville website. We’ll be re-broadcast on Saturday, May 9 at 6am Eastern and again at 6pm Eastern. Have a listen! And download the Acaville app for your phone from the iTunes store here.
Hallelujah! (And thank you!)

Ms. Minor is tickled pink that she was included on the January nominations list for Best A Cappella Group the Washington Area Music Association’s 28th annual awards, the WAMMYs. The list of other nominees is a great group to be included in, too (group jam session, anyone?). The WAMMYs are voted on by WAMA members, but you can give the girls a hand with your vote for Venus d Minor as your FAN FAVORITE–and you don’t have to be a member to do it! Click here for details and thanks for your support of the galaxy’s favorite women’s octet!
UPDATE 2/14: The WAMMY Fan Favorite voting is now closed. Thanks to all of our supporters–fingers crossed! here’s the fully list of WAMMY nominees this year.
Venus will feature arrangements old and new when we appear on Friday, January 24th at the Noon Concert Series at St. Alban’s Episcopal Church. 3001 Wisconsin Avenue, NW, Washington, D.C. 20016. Join us for a fun-filled program! CDs will also be available for purchase. Details and directions here.
Apparently Lady Gaga plans to sing in outer space.She’ll be transported on Virgin Galactic (insert joke here, but this is a family-friendly blog…). Apparently, she told US Weekly that she has to do a special month of vocal training “because of the atmosphere.”
We know just what she means. Sometimes the atmosphere at the parties where we sing can get downright difficult. All that laughing and eating and drinking. So we are taking a page from Lady Gaga and doing a month of preparations for our next gig. It’s not in outer space, but it is outside the Beltway, which is almost the same thing in terms of travel time. We’ll be singing at the Blueberry Hill annual Holiday Party Extravaganza in mid-December.
If you’d like Venus to sing on your space ship or party, please ping us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
