Dreamstage Livestream tickets also available here!
In the era of the mid-1950's to early 1960’s, it was the music of The Girl Groups (The Ronettes, The Shangri-Las, The Crystals, etc.) that defined the sound of popular music. It was the beginning of Second Wave feminism and this was music that gave voice to the challenges and dreams of women; made international superstars out of many – particularly women of color – and united America during the Jim Crow and desegregation years. However, too often this music is unfairly marginalized as novelty and repeatedly discussed paternalistically as a cultural placeholder – or, the moment between Elvis and The Beatles – the contributions of these women minimized and overshadowed by the careers of the men that surrounded them (The Beach Boys, Phil Spector, Barry Gordy, Elvis, The Beatles, et al).
Now in its 7th year, She's A Rebel: A Girl Group Tribute continues to be inspired by the role these women played in our musical heritage. The show is not just an opportunity to pay tribute to these Rock n Roll foremothers, but also a way to support and foster an integrated, cooperative community of women whose unique voices and diverse talents make Nashville so distinctive. The all women House Band for the show will include:
Tiffany Minton, Drums
Ellen Angelico, Conductor and Musical Director
Laura Taylor, Bass
Heather Moulder, Piano
Larissa Maestro, Cello and String Arrangements
Monique and Shauntee Ross (SistaStrings), Violin and Cello
Roz Malone, Sax
Rachel Solomon, Sound FX and Auxiliary Keys
Nancy Gardner, Auxiliary Percussion
Sarina-Joi Crowe, Camesia Ramey and Janelle Means, Background Vocals
Some of this year's Lead Vocalists include: Allison Russell, Kyshona, Nickie Conley, Catalina, Nickie Conley, Kasheena Sampson, Jessie Breanne, Laurel Sorenson (The Love-In), Imani Miles (AmiraTheWeirdo), Lisa Law Fatzinger, and more!
