black & bleu crew

“Electronic rock with a spanking good beat!”

This page is dedicated to our awesome, hard-working Crew members and Street Team - we can’t do this on our own! When we say ‘roadie” it’s with utmost respect and the greatest affection!

Black and Bleu Crew core members

New to the Crew!

Alejandro is our newest addition, taking over where Pyrat left off on the Sound Board. Having spent many years as a theatre tech, Alejandro has enthusiastically jumped in as our Crew Boss as well!

We are happy and excited to have him on board!

Bill is our new lighting tech - and it’s so nice to have someone dedicated to the job! He helped run the lighting for our 2008 kickoff show January 1st at Edges and has come on board for crew as of March 2008. Thanks for stepping in and helping out - and welcome to the Bleu Crew!

Josh Drvsh has been with us since Cuir Bleu first began performing in 2001. He has been roadie, pa, sound tech and all-around indispensable. Josh is another crew member and friend we can’t do without! This is a rare shot of josh at the 2004 sf pride gig - taking video of the band while on kanga boots!

Team Cuir...

Jewel started with the band in 2005 for the record release party at Club Shadowplay and has been helping out ever since with CD Sales, set up and whatever needs to get done.

Chris-the-Roadie has been with us since the 2003 Folsom Street Fair. Chris likes to say he isn’t too bright but he can lift heavy things. We tend to disagree with the first - and to gratefully acknowledge the second!

Sara Zephyr helps the street team when she can, selling CDs, running the front door for shows and helping out around the office.

Duane Stevens is the band’s main photographer, covering us at clubs and festivals, as well as other location shoots. His photos are on the cover and insert of the new Sex Toy CD!

Stefanos and Chey are new on the scene and have been spreading the good word - and our Slip Away CDs - around!

Want to join the street team? We’re always looking for new talents, from Crew members to engineers - to let us know how you’d like to participate, email Pixie!
