The band was hot and Caela and her Flares were hotter!!! You are gonna hear about these ladies. Google them and prepare to be knocked out. These are luscious ladies who deliver the goods. I am a new fan of Caela's smokin' vocals and the Flares steaming harmonies. - Duffy Bishop of Teatro Zinzanni


Caela Bailey, seemed to be channeling Sally Bowles as she belted out "Let's Misbehave" with aerial antics going on all around her. - SeattleTimes.com


Caela Bailey, a beautiful young woman, entered regally down the aisle and then sang a gutsy, convincing “Let's Misbehave”. It was the perfect setup for the evening. - Seattleactor.com


"Caela is the honorary blues singer of The Heavenly Spies- yet another reason to love them. Her cover of “I Put A Spell On You” was mind-blowing. Not an easy feat for a little lady and such a big, big song. But she did it- effortlessly." - Burlesque Seattle Press

Bio

Seattle native Caela Bailey was born into the Vaudeville troupe the Royal Famille Ducaniveaux; translation: The Royal Family of the Gutter. Her childhood was spent much like a gypsy, traveling and performing around America and Europe. Growing up with both parents being performers, she lived her life around musicians, vaudevillians, acrobats, burlesque dancers and cabaret performers - all of which had a major influence on her career. “I would watch performances to see who stood out and what made them special. I wanted to know what it was about them, so I could, in my own way, emulate that”.

Caela began exploring music early on. She first acquired her dads love for rock and roll. He took her to all types of shows, her first concert being the Rolling Stones, then Bob Dylan. She then found her own musical taste in hip hop and 90's R&B and has gone on to explore all types of music. Pulling from all genres the Flares create a distinct, original sound.

The Flares were born in 2006, when, brought together by a similar love for music, a group of ladies began harmonizing. Backed by a live band consisting well respected Seattle musicians and lead by her father Ron Bailey, Caela and the Flares began performing around the Seattle area with their first major stage performance being at the Moisture Festival (Springtime Comedy/Varietè/ Burlesque festival).

The Flares have performed at the Pink Door, The Can Can, Neumos, The Rendezvous theatre, The Oregon Country Fair, The Tractor Tavern, and many other venues. The experience they gained at dance partys, clubs, bars, street fairs and private events led them to become a favorite with audiences.

Caela and the Dangerous Flares lead the band with power vocals that propel an eclectic blend of rhythm & blues, funk and rock & roll. Their appeal is their electric chemistry, vocal talent, and high energy. That combined with Caela's over the top and seductive dancing and ability to connect to her audiences, make them a force. Many of the songs performed by Caela and the Flares are Ron W. Bailey originals, they also cover some underground songwriters and have a few notable covers in their repertoire.

They have recorded with the Grammy award winning Rebirth Brass Band from New Orleans. They are now working on creating their first studio E.P. at Malamute Studios to be released summer of 2012.
