If Martii Garcia (above) looks familiar, it’s because she was almost a member of Danity Kane, the girl group spawned by P. Diddy’s “Making the Band.” Nowadays, the Saugus-bred Garcia is busy making her own girl group, a Pussycat Dolls-style burlesque act that will be a fixture at the Big Easy in the Alley, soon to reopen as Mansion.
On Sunday afternoon, Martii let me watch her audition dancers for the new go-go group. There were about 15 hopefuls, young women who currently perform at clubs like Felt and the Roxy. They bounced and shook for Martii while wearing jewel-studded bras and fishnet body stockings. They sang a capella. They performed choreographed steps in pairs to P. Diddy. They filled out this questionnaire, which includes some pretty amazing questions.
No word on which girls were chosen.
Based on my observations, 22-year-old Leslie Santiago was a frontrunner.
Based on my observations, this project will involve body glitter.
Based on my observations, these women are going to be very popular.
Here's more on Martii.
