Better Off Red is a fun little mixture of girl power and a fondness for music that is best classified as “guilty pleasure”. And yes, there’s a quirky red-head at the front of the stage. Fronted by Ashley Thompson, co-founder of 1564 Entertainment, Better Off Red plays whatever the hell Ashley wants to, because it’s her band, damn it! Sometimes you’ll luck out and get some Tina Turner or Melissa Etheridge, or you can go all-out “White Chicks” to “A Thousand Miles” by Vanessa Carlton. However, be warned, Ashley loves Cher, and often makes the band play whatever she listened to growing up, such as TLC and Christina Milian. Basically, anything goes. But with a voice like Ashley’s, she can get away with it.
