Currently in Europe supporting the release of their new CD "Take Your
Medicine" on Germany's Wolverine Records, BJB & the Dollz are heading back
to Vancouver Saturday June 17 to bring their show to Richards on Richards
for BIG JOHN BATES' FIRST ANNUAL VOODOO BALL. For one special night only,
Richard's will be transformed by some of Vancouver's premier set decorators
into a hoodoo party with fire-spinners, stilt-walkers, snake handlers. This
unique event will be hosted by Vancouver's Burlesque Princess 'Little Miss
Risk' and will feature Mardis Gras / Voodoo-themed burlesque performances by
Sweet Soul's 'Miss Cherry Ontop' and the Taboo Revue's 'Melody Mangler',
'Camero Luvroc' and 'Darla Divine' along with musical guests, Seattle's
'Seasons of Nightmares'.

Headliners 'Big John Bates & the Voodoo Dollz' have been playing over 100
shows a year around the world and on June 17 their tightly-honed, 90-minute
set of turbo-charged rock'n'roll will finally be filmed and recorded for a
DVD and a live CD release. Sharing the stage with Big John and sCare-oline
on this evening are drummer Chris "The Baron" Warunki (playing his 50th show

'Darla Divine'. Come down to the wildest show Vancouver will see all
summer - and likely the final BJB show before the Richards stage is gone
forever!
