Biography

The Rocket Queens are a Brooklyn-based, all-female tribute to Guns N’ Roses founded by 2010 Shred For Your Life champion and session guitarist Lily Maase. Unlike many all-female cover bands, the Rocket Queens have the chops and the stage presence necessary to kick out a faithful recreation of the musical prowess and onstage chemistry of the band’s original lineup, complete with stage antics, attitude, and note-for-note riffs, vocals and guitar solos.

Witnessing the Rocket Queens live is the closest thing a modern audience can get to seeing hard rock’s heaviest hitters as they were in their prime: seasoned musicians dripping with sweat, swagger, and way too much style for their own good. If, of course, the original GnR lineup had shopped at Victoria’s Secret and worn 6-inch heels.

Stockholm all female quartet APHRODITE would provide an early career stepping stone for musicians that subsequently came to the fore with the hard hitting DRAIN STH. The original lineup underwent many direction changes in both musical and image. Guitarist Flavia Canel and drummer Martina Axén have been together in many acts starting with Punk band LIVIN' SACRIFICE. As this act progressed the sound developed into more of a Hard Rock vein, consequently changing titles to APHRODITE in 1985. They had the song "Playing With Fire" featured on the compilation 'Sommarrock 85', followed up with an eponymous mini-album in 1986.
