WOMEN RULE THE LOCAL ROCK SCENE Pt.2 of Rocks Not Dead

As mentioned in the previous article, the local scene is abundant with talented women making their mark here in Orange County. I mentioned Nancy Flanaghan, drummer for The Timm Saxton  band, as well as a Cars Tribute and recently,a Runaways Tribute… personally cannot wait to hear this . She is joined by some amazingly talented musicians such as Emily Ingrao ,bass player for Double Helix…who was discovered by none other than Rick Agnew. Tribute bands often get mixed reviews. Talented musicians all, so much so that people often wonder “why not do original tunes?”  Whether you love them or hate them, they are here to stay!!! Any given weekend you can see and hear these tribute bands giving it their all in the many fantastic venues here in OC. Lets just take a look at a few of the all female tributes bands…. Iron Maidens, 2Hot2Handle, Allison Chains, Heart2Heart and Femme Halen just to name a few. But don’t take my word for it,get out there and see for yourself!! Here’s a post regarding the Runaways Band

Rock’s not dead,it’s ruled by women

Speaking amongst ourselves here at C4ocradio.net about music that most excites us, I consistently marvel at how much kick ass rock and roll is being made by female performers who work just below the surface of the mainstream.

I’ve been inspired and astonished by a new generation of  female singers and musicians —often “punk rock” in style or spirit, most coming from the local venues (The House of  Metal,The Doll hut, The Slidebar and so many more here in OC) and the amazing rock and roll schools (School of Rock, Rock Stars of Tomorrow,etc). They are consistently making a positive impact on the local music scene,playing every weekend ,bringing in the audience in the same level as their male counterparts.

It’s time to take a look at your local music scene and honor these women who continue to forge ahead for future generations.One of my favorite women in the OC scene is Nancy Flannagan.

More fantastic women that rock to follow in coming posts.
