The Bettys (Lisette St. Louis, Patty Pedersen and Marty Kolls ) are three bewitching ladies, who sing in close harmony, dress in delightfully matching attire, and move with sultry elegance. The group debuted in the Toronto music scene early 2010 and Since then, their many performances have been well received by diverse audiences internationally. The Group's genre spans from the 1920's to the 1980's including swing, cabaret, mo-town, and even 80's rock.
Their novel old timey costumes, banter and music lends itself to all manner of performances; festival stages, parades, street parties, back yards, restaurants, markets and more! Previous performances include Homemade Jam festival, Jazz for the People, The National Ballet, London Arts Museum, as well as countless private parties and corporate events. An evening with the Betty's is always hilarious, sexy, lovable, and memorable.
Back in 2010, when Lisette St. Louis created a “Sisters” group with Patty Pedersen and original member Olivia McLean (later replaced by Marty Kolls), the idea was not just to recreate enchantments of an historical songbook; rather to create an individual sound, and clever arrangements which would encapsulate the trio's eclectic influences.
The three ladies met singing in an ABBA Tribute Band, became good friends and formed what is now known as The Bettys.
After finishing a music performance degree at the University of Western Ontario, Lisette St. Louis went on to voicing animations, acting and singing in children's television shows and fronting jazz and rock bands in both Seoul, Korea and Toronto, Ontario. Graduating from The American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York, Patty Pedersen went on to sing and dance on various cruise lines traveling the world, then found herself starring in several musicals in Toronto, Ontario. After completing a degree in vocal performance at Western University, Marty Kolls has made a name for herself in the contemporary music scene as a singer song writer in Toronto and London Ontario.
This Toronto-based vocal trio brings three part harmony into the modern age with a repertoire that includes everything from “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” to “Eye of the Tiger.” Dressed in 1920's-1960's style wardrobe, the three sing like The Andrews Sisters with inspiring harmonies and perform classics such as “Mr Sandman,” and “In the Mood,” but what makes the Bettys truly stand out are their show-stopping interpretations of more current tunes like: Aerosmith's “Dude Looks like a Lady” and Hall & Oates “Maneater.” The Bettys cite everything from Marilyn Monroe to Nine Inch Nails to the neo-Burlesque movement as influences.

Casino Event in Guelph, ON on 05/04/2013
"The Bettys were fabulous, adding a great energy, style, and fun to our Great Gatsby fundraiser! It wouldn't have been the success it was without them, and our guests raved about them afterwards. They have loads of talent - beautiful voices, great instrumentals, and a wonderful music selection - and they're creative and fun with their interpretation. They even played some wonderful '20s renditions of '80s tunes that had all of our guests up dancing! We would recommend them highly.
