The Teasers, a BvB update, and an update on the Jills Calendar

As anyone who reads this blog knows, we not only do what we can to support not only Buffalo's pro cheerleaders, but their alumni as well in their more public endeavors. Some of the girls, after the leaving the squad or, in some cases, while on the squad, spend their weekends as singers in local bands. One of those girls who's been active on the Buffalo music scene is 2003 Buffalo Jills alumnus Aimee L. For several years, she was the lead singer for Disco Duck before joining the Naughty Dawg Band for a short stint. A little over a year ago, she and other local musicians formed a new band called The Teasers and one thing they've been doing that Aimee didn't get to do in her other bands is draw upon a much wider variety of songs from over the years with not only rock, country, and dance music, but many current contemporary hits as well.
Friday night, The Teasers, based out of Lockport, NY, visited the Southern Tier and treated Walleye Willie's patrons to a wide mix of music ranging from Pat Benatar and Neil Diamond to Def Leppard and Poison to Katy Perry and Lady Gaga. Judging by how full they kept the dance floor, the crowd loved the show. Aimee still has the looks that helped her land a spot on the Jills and, as seen at the shows and in the video, has the moves as well as an incredible voice. See all the pics at

Jessica K and Jenica
There were also a couple of special fans in attendance as far as we're concerned as well as a pair of beautiful twins took in the show as well. Of course we're not talking about just any twins but Jenica and Jessica, who both joined the Jills in 2006 with Jenica sticking with the squad through 2009 and even landing the cover of the 2007-08 Jills swimsuit calendar. The two of them have actually moved away but were in town for the weekend for a friend's wedding.

Dana and Amanda F at last year's BvB game
The past few years, an organization called Blondes Vs Brunettes has taken roots across the country. It's a group of women who put together powder-puff football games to raise money to benefit the Alzheimer's Association. This is the 3rd year Buffalo is having an event and, like in past years, several Jills alumni are suiting up for this year's September 10th game at Sweet Home High School. Registration is still open with spots still open on both teams but so far there are 4 Jills alumni confirmed for this year's teams. 2009 Brunette MVP Danielle H (1998-2002) returns for the Brunettes while Amanda F (2001-03) and Dana (2008) return to the Blonde team for their second seasons. Joining the Blondes this year is 2010 Jills Covergirl Meghan who loved seeing the action while appearing at last year's game.

Reena at Twin Village Recycling
Finally, there's still plenty going on with the current squad as well. They've been very busy with various appearances throughout the region and are getting set for Friday's Uniform Unveiling at Ralph Wilson Stadium where they'll be greeting fans at the gate and putting on a few dance performances as well. But one of the other big things they've been working on is putting together their 2011-12 Calendar with all the photos being taken locally by Fisher Creative Image Photography. Obviously they won't unveil the finished product until it's finished but when they've been on the shoots, they've also been shooting some videos so you can get a feel of what to expect. You can see the videos on the Jills' Facebook page at and you can also check out video #9 in the series at In this video, Sara, Amanda F, and Reena dress up Twin Village Recycling even though Sara seemed just a bit freaked by the cranes running behind her while she was In the second portion of the video, Emily shows off her ballet talents a bit at Fusion Dance Studio as a part of her shoot
