The Dinettes


Rhythm Guitar.


The Dinettes were founded in San Diego in 1979 and were the first all female punk band in So Cal, to our knowledge. We gigged constantly in 79-80, going on two self-supported cross country tours. We were asked to do a reunion performance in July 2017, killed it, and consequently were asked to perform two prestigious upcoming gigs in San Diego. Our set consists of mostly originals, with 2 covers. All members have side projects, and have played in bands since the 1970s. Most of us have a classical background.
