On June 3rd, 2017 at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco two creative forces will join to celebrate the epic film, Wayne’s World, live in concert. Many of our die hard Queen fans found their fandom after watching this cult classic. In fact, the founder of The Killer Queens has been working hard to create the vision of a Wayne’s World inspired music video for the greatest song in the world, Bohemian Rhapsody, since the start of the project. As fate would have it, the stars have aligned to give us the opportunity to team up with Broad City, who will be recreating female versions of Wayne and Garth at the same time we happen to be releasing our IndieGoGo campaign. It’s perfect.
Comedy Central and Superfly, the company behind Outside Lands, teamed up to bring the Colossal Clusterfest to the Bay Area on June 2-4. The Clusterfest will feature a “jam-packed, multiformat festival experience” covering a wide spectrum of the comedy genre (standup, sketch, podcast, and digital) as well as comedy-themed music and food.
Jerry Seinfeld, Kevin Hart and Bill Burr are scheduled to headline, with others on the bill to include Fred Armisen, Ice Cube, Hannibal Buress, Sarah Silverman & Friends, Chris Hardwick, Broad City co-stars Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, TJ Miller, Bob Odenkirk, Tig Notaro, Reggie Watts and more.
About The Killer Queens
The world’s only all-female tribute to Queen, The Killer Queens evoke all the glam, sparkle, power, and soaring melodies of Freddie, Brian, John, Roger, and Spike (Queen’s unofficial 5th member) performing onstage in the ’70s and ’80s, while at the height of their musical and commercial dominance. The Killer Queens became a rocking, 5-part harmony singing reality with Nina Noir (Frederica Mercury), Lindy Day (Brianna May), Diana Rey (Joan Deacon), Nichole Boaz (Spike Edna), and Karla Downey (Regina Taylor).
Bassist Diana Rey (Joan Deacon)
It’s not an easy task bringing the work of true musical pioneers and one of the most charismatic rock singers in history to life, but The Killer Queens have committed every fiber of their technique and talent to conjuring a thrilling tribute to the Queen legacy. Noir understands both the flamboyance and subtle emotion that made Mercury such a commanding presence. Guitarist Day is like a fiery and impassioned
encyclopedia of May’s tones, licks, riffs, and solos. Rey’s slinky low end tells you everything you should know about Deacon’s innovative yet always rhythmic bass lines, while Downey’s big foot, huge tom sound, and shotgun snare bring Taylor’s mammoth grooves right home. Filling it all out is keyboard ace Boaz with textures that recall the masterful audio productions of the albums themselves.
The Killer Queens cover all of Queen’s hit-making stylistic journeys from prog to heavy rock to funk to operettas and beyond. And this all-female team of fantastic musicians also manages to cast the spell of Queen with a style, spirit, and beauty all their own. Be amazed.
