See Dee Dee for passion and charisma

Personifying soul, passion and charisma, Dee Dee Lavell might be the latest name on the Australian soul and blues scene, but she’s definitely not the new kid on the block.

Dee was a member of Sydney-based soul/funk group The Honeybees along with Belle Hendrik and Tina Harrod.

See Dee Dee & Mamas Boys, featuring Les Karski (Bondi Cigars), Dirk Dubois (Chain) & Jason Caspen (Starboard Cannons & Clelia Adams) at the Courthouse Hotel Mullumbimby on Saturday.
