Electra Blu is an announcer and founding member of and skater for the Hustlers.
Raised in Northern California, Electra Blu always dreamed of a life in Texas. She fell in love with a cowboy who busted broncs for the rodeo, traveled the country with him, and became a rodeo star herself. After a long trip to Texas and a whole lotta bull, she two-stepped away from her man and straight into a bottle of bourbon. She met some of the Texas Rollergirls whoopin’ it up at a bar in Austin and soon traded in her horse and shot glass for a pair of skates.
Hanging out with the Texas Rollergirls did not keep Electra Blu off the whiskey for long. One night, in a bourbon-induced haze, she swaggered into a downtown nightclub. Thinking she was at her regular honky tonk, she made her way through the haze to get a “bourbon and wata.” But was handed a coconut flavored drink with an umbrella in it instead. Confused, but thirsty, she downed her drink and was heading for the dance floor when she noticed a giant disco ball where the mechanical bull used to be. Mesmerized by the lights on the floor, she soon began to shake her booty, hustle and spin to the groovy tunes of DJ Kool Kat.
By the end of the night, she knew her future was hustling, not rustling, and the Hustlers were born. She traded her copy of “Urban Cowboy” for “Saturday Night Fever,” watched all the re-runs of Soul Train, and practiced the “Electric Slide” with Denny Terrio. After perfecting her new moves on skates, a disco derby demon was born. Known for her trademark blue lighting bolts, she’s electric on the track!
