This UK-based vocal trio brings three-part harmony into the modern age with a repertoire that includes everything from “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” to “I Will Survive.” Inspired by the Oscar®-nominated film The Triplets of Belleville (a French animated movie which features a ‘40s-style harmony group), The Puppini Sisters — Marcella Puppini, Kate Mullins, and Stephanie O’Brien — formed in London. Dressed in 1940’s-style wardrobe, the three sing like The Andrews Sisters with inspiring harmonies, and perform classics such as “Mr. Sandman,” “In The Mood,” and “Jeepers Creepers.” But what makes The Puppini Sisters truly stand out are their show-stopping interpretations of more current tunes: Blondie’s “Heart of Glass,” Kate Bush’s “Wuthering Heights,” and The Smith’s “Panic,” among others.
The Puppini Sisters cite everything from Carole King to Marilyn Manson to the neo-Burlesque movement as influences. Betcha Bottom Dollar captures this range as well as the group’s flare for both performing and reinterpreting this material.
Betcha Bottom Dollar was produced by Benoit Charest, the Oscar nominee for his musical work on The Triplets of Belleville. After hearing a demo of what the girls were doing, he fell in love and brought in an army of weird instruments (musical saws!) to bring the project to life. With their unique blend of retro style, pop kitsch, and crisp vocals,
The Puppini Sisters have earned quite the celebrity following – from Sharon and Kelly Osbourne to Vivienne Westwood, Kate Moss and Stella McCartney to members of The Royal Family, including Prince Charles, Camilla The Duchess of Cornwall, and Prince William.
