Hell's Belles 20th Anniversary Celebration featuring Powerage and Back in Black in their entirety!
HELL'S BELLES are first and foremost dedicated AC/DC fanatics. This is what we all have in common. We're all part of a huge community of devotees to one of the greatest rock-n-roll bands in the world. This is who we all are, and this is what HELL'S BELLES strives to deliver with mechanical precision and passionate fury. Endorsed by Angus Young himself (Blender Magazine, 2003), HELL'S BELLES are the closest one can get without actually moving to Australia and joining AC/DC's road crew.
HELL'S BELLES formed in 2000, the brainchild of former member, Amy Stozenbach (guitar), alongside former member, Om Johari (vocals). The current line-up features original member Laura D, heavy hitter as Phil Rudd (drums), Mandy Reed, rock solid and born ready as Cliff Williams (Bass guitar), Lisa Brisbois, sly and subtly intense as part time Malcolm Young, Sharon Needles of Betty Blowtorch/Butt Trumpet fame part time Malcolm Young (Rhythm guitar), all the way from Australia, Amber Saxon the kind of hard rock bombastic power that makes no apologies and is dangerous around the edges as Bon Scott & Brian Johnson (Vocals) and Adrian Conner, dreadlock slinger and wicked as Angus Young (lead Guitar).
HELL'S BELLES are indeed ALL female, all the way to their rock-n-roll cores, all the lime and without exception. Representing for a whole new generation of women that won't be intimidated, HELL'S BELLES actively encourage our legions of lady fans to stand up and be counted, and collaborate with women musicians and causes as a part of the mission towards rock and roll inclusion. Not some down-your-throat feminism, but a proactive support and action spirit towards the continued march towards balancing of the gender scales.
The thousands of shows HELL'S BELLES have played around the world, including Singapore, Japan, Canada, and the good ol' USA (including Alaska), have become legendary nights of epic proportions. Consistently sexy and sold-out shows - there's not a HELL'S BELLES audience that hasn't been blown away by the raw power, attention to AC/DC details, and undeniable appeal that these bad ass belles deliver with undying devotion. From "Live Wire" to "The Jack" to "TNT", not to mention AC/DC's landmark hits "Highway to Hell", "Thunderstruck", and "Back in Black". The marathon set lists change to include a fresh variety of classics, but the perfection and passion of the show never does.
It's an all out rock-n-roll assault that leaves you both satisfied and begging for more. And, more you'll get as HELL'S BELLES keep conquering new cities, new states, and new countries. They'll be in your back yard bringing AC/DC in sound and spirit to you direct any day now. 2005's studio recordings, "We Salute You", are slated to be refreshed with a whole new set of songs and available to our public this year, so you can always count on taking a little piece of HELL'S BELLES home with ya.
HELL'S BELLES - committed, ferocious, meticulous women rock musicians delivering authentic ACIDC to the unbelievably supportive and wicked awesome fans. All day and all night long, all over the world, pitch perfect AC/ DC delivered with a highly charged vigor by Amber, Mandy, Laura, Lisa, Sharon and Adrian 'Angus'.
Let there be rock!
Hailing from Washington state, the modern hard rock quintet Elephant Gun Riot was formed in 2013. The band features vocalist Caitlin Rose, guitarists and brothers Zach Wirchak and Sean Ciolli, bassist Patrick Rooks, and drummer Mike Lowe. Since the group’s inception, they have released one full length album and three EPs, building a catalog of music that has been described as “simply brilliant, thrilling, and emotive.” Their most recent EP, “Sirens Call,” which features the singles “Castaway” and “Sword from Stone,” has amassed over 500,000 streams across all platforms since its release on November 14th, 2017. Elephant Gun Riot has made a name for themselves as one of the best live rock bands from the Pacific Northwest, having played over 120 shows around the region so far. They have shared the stage with some of the biggest names in rock music today, including Sick Puppies, Lacuna Coil, Gemini Syndrome, Buckcherry, Adelitas Way, Black Stone Cherry, Red Sun Rising, and many more.
Chris Olson played in a few bands through his school years and in 1981 was asked to join the band Citizen Kane at the age of 18. He toured several times around the US and abroad opening for bands such as Motely Crue, RATT, Great White and many more. With Videos on MTV and VH1 Citizen Kane became internationally recognized band as well as playing with Chris Holmes of W.A.S.P fame in band called psyco Squad in the early 90s.
In 2012 Chris had a burning in his spirit to start a new band from scratch and contacted a friend Ronnie Too from the band Witch out of Los Angeles and started writing new songs. They knew they needed a power house of a singer and instantly had Marty McKinney in mind who previously played in regional rock band The Edge. After going through a couple members they wound up with the perfect line up and the band Dogtown was born! Chris Olson drums, Ronny Too Guitar, Marty McKinney Vocals, Todd Harding Bass Guitar, and Chris Chalmers Guitar.
