Hair / Glam Metal (Heavy Metal) band from Los Angeles, California (USA).
Vixen was formed in St. Paul, Minnesota in 1973 by guitarist Jan Kuehnemund while still at Como Park High School. They were the first all female rock band from the Twin Cities. (Têtes Noires was the first all female rock band from Minneapolis a year or two later).
Alex Henderson, writing for Allmusic, says they started in 1981 in Los Angeles. In 1984, an early version of the band with Kuehnemund, singer Janet Gardner and bassist Pia Maiocco (who later married guitarist Steve Vai) appeared in the movie Hardbodies, as the on-screen band Diaper Rash. In 1985, the band moved to Los Angeles, California to be part of the L.A. rock scene.
Lineup changes happened during the following years until the "classic lineup" of Janet Gardner (b. Janet Patricia Gardner on March 17, 1962 in Juneau, Alaska, USA) - lead vocals, rhythm guitar, Jan Kuehnemund (b. Janice Lynn "Jan" Kuehnemund, November 18, 1953 – October 10, 2013) - lead guitar, background vocals, Share Pedersen (b. Sharon June Howe on March 21, 1963 in Glencoe, Minnesota) - bass, background vocals, and Roxy Petrucci (b. Roxy Dora Petrucci on March 17, 1960 in Rochester, Michigan) - drums, background vocals, was formed. This lineup of Vixen was interviewed in 1987 along with many other rock artists of the day by Penelope Spheeris for her film The Decline of Western Civilization II: The Metal Years.
In 1988 the band was signed to EMI, and they began recording their debut album Vixen, which was released in September 1988. Singer-songwriter Richard Marx co-wrote with Fee Waybill and arranged their signature hit, "Edge of a Broken Heart" and produced the song. Rumor was he was asked to assist the all-female band by EMI to produce their first major hit. Richard Marx had nothing to do with their follow-up CD, since he was becoming more of a mainline singer than songwriter. Vixen spent the next year touring the world, supporting acts such as Ozzy Osbourne, Scorpions, and Bon Jovi, as well as headlining their own shows. The band returned to the studio in late 1989/early 1990 to record their follow-up album, Rev It Up, which was released in July 1990. A year of touring followed, including headlining their own shows and supporting acts such as KISS and Deep Purple. In mid-1991, the group disbanded due to musical differences.

The Blackouts are a Denver based all female hard rock band. They began as a garage punk band in 2008, organized by British guitar player Kate Innes. Innes is defined by her unrestrained, raw, and in your face guitar playing. She was introduced to native Denver guitar player Ali Frankfurt, who after two years replaced the original singer. Frankfurt's aggressive vocal style has been compared to Bon Scott of AC/DC, transforming The Blackouts sound. In late 2011, Susan Phelan joined the band on bass. Phelan has played in numerous projects, where she plays a multitude of styles. Her ability and experience has transcended The Blackouts to a new level. California drummer Hope Bertsch was discovered through an advertisement, whose style and experience became the solid backbone of this foursome. The chemistry is undeniable and the band continues to work relentlessly! Today they are rockin' harder than ever with an aggressive and driving sound, reminiscent of bands like Motorhead, L7, AC/DC, and Joan Jett.
We are an orignal femal Rock band, that met through the workings of Craigslist, and knew at that moment we would make history! We found a way to mix all of our personal styles into our songs which gives us a great unique rock sound!
The Symbols eclectic rock band is exploding out of the unlikely state of Colorado. Self described as "Spiritual porn rock", The Symbols aren't trying to blend in. Their music invites blues, funk, and rock into popular music. With complimentary guitar and vocal sounds and true harmony between its members, the love, energy and sound of this new female-fronted power trio is infecting people's hearts in theaters and festivals across America.
