LOS ANGELES, CA – APRIL 2011 - Handpicked by Daisy Rock Girl Guitars Founder and President, Tish Ciravolo at the annual South by Southwest (SXSW) festival, the all-female rock band The Cocktail Slippers have joined the Daisy Rock family of endorsed artists. The band’s members can be seen rocking everything from a Retro H De-Luxe, to a Stardust Elite Classic and also a Butterfly Jumbo acoustic.
The Cocktail Slippers are a group of Norwegian tough girls with cotton-candy hairdo’s that sing with exiting, heated voices about successes and failures in their love lives. The band is described by Michael Cocoran from Austin360 as sounding, "like Blondie or the Shangri-Las, but they play harder than those bands, smiling all the while." Ken Shane of Popdose says, “The Cocktail Slippers, from Oslo of all places, are an all-female band that echoed the girl groups of the sixties, but with a powerful rock punch."
The Cocktail Slippers said that they “love Daisy Rock guitars [because] they are easy to play, look great and sound awesome!” When Tish Ciravolo discovered them at the festival, she said, “The Cocktail Slipper’s make awesome music, are so talented and truly understand the meaning of FUN rock and roll. They’re totally my new favorite band, everyone should check them out!”
The Cocktail Slippers currently have two albums released, Mastermind (2007) and St. Valentine’s Day Massacre(2009). For more information about the Cocktail Slippers, visit their website at www.cocktailslippers.com or www.daisyrock.com/artists.
