Gertie met Golda when they were in the band Boo Boo Kitty. Here's what some folks had to say about that project:
-- Phloe Pontaoe, Producer, 2nd Annual Chinatown Nite 'N Day Music Festival,
Los Angeles, CA
"Boo Boo Kitty is badasskittylicious - full of spunk and heart with gorgeous melodies and lyric! Our audience always looks forward to their regular performances at our venue and the Tuesday Night Cafe Project is grateful to have this yummy band on board as one of our resident-artist bands."
"I've been lucky to have produced [BBK] on many levels. They have a heavenly blend of vocal harmonies with acoustic instrumentation."
"Boo Boo Kitty - I love the name, the people in the band, and the awesome music. I can always count on them to put a smile on my face whenever they perform. And, Boo Boo Kitty is not bitty like a kitty but they're more like a lion that just ate but is still looking for some dessert."
