About "Girls Like Us" Carole, Carly and Joni

Versatility in solo performances, wit and charm in story-telling and shimmering vocal harmonies are the hallmarks of GIRLS LIKE US. Whether it's their take on Broadway, the Holidays, Girl Groups of Yesteryear and today or tributes to Carole King, Carly Simon and Joni Mitchell or Barbra, Bette, and Bernadette, they will delight and touch the hearts of your audiences.

These shows can be tailored to be either a one or two act and to add a percussionist and bassist.


Girls Like Us, featuring Laura Freeman, Beckie Menzie and Marianne Murphy Orland banded together in 2010. We sold out a 2 week run in Omaha, Nebraska, toured concerts throughout the Midwest and at The Auditorium Theatre and Park West in Chicago. The Chicago Tribune has said that Girls Like Us were "voices that were clearly meant for each other."
