Female-vocal fronted rock band. We are a new project ready to roll!!
We are made up of mature, pro & serious non-pro players over 40 (but donít look or feel like it), all acquainted for many years. Material is:
.1- ďBest-ofĒ covers from popular female-front bands from the late 70ís through today,
.2- Popular classic rock songs that are not gender-specific, a few obscurities & originals.
.3- Occasional Male lead-vocals or choruses from the whole band
Our Commitment level should say "Committed but also for Fun". Existing members have played together collectively over 100 times in other projects for over the last 15 years, so we have a tight dynamic, among current line-up.

Heart, Pretenders, Blondie, Joan Jett, Melissa Etheridge, Fleetwood Mac, Sheryl Crow. The usual classic rock like Zeppelin/Floyd/etc, lighter metal like Def Leppard, the less-freaky but rocky-er side of classic NewWave, etc.
And too many others to list.. It's an eclectic mix to draw from, but we want to put a bit our own twist on the material, to give it a similar feel and not be all over the place, but also not pidgeon-holed into any particular format.
The usual, Gibson, Fender, Marshall, Peavey, Crate, Alvarez, Charvel, Washburn, Shure, Pearl, Kurtzweil, Korg, Yahama, JD, Smith & Wesson and Budweiser!
