Rebel Queens is out to have a good time and will take you along for the wild ride. Established in 2011, Rebel Queens is a hard-working all-female rock 'n' roll band based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The band was formed by Tiffany Christine Beamer (Lead Vocals) after drawing inspiration from the 70's all-girl band, The Runaways. Rebel Queens has been a constantly evolving project blending vintage rock tracks in the vein of Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Heart, AC/DC, Joan Jett, and Janis Joplin with original music influenced by them. The current lineup features Tiffany Christine Beamer (Lead Vox), Danielle Pearson (Drums/Vox), Kelly Hooey (Lead Guitar), Katie Wyrd (Guitar/Vox), and Kelsey Wyrd (Bass/Vox).
A Rebel Queens live show is a fully immersive experience. Their energetic and passionate stage presence pours in to each song on their set list with soaring-yet-gritty vocals, wailing guitar solos, tight harmonies, and smooth grooves. Whether performing a solo all-nighter in a small town dive or a large festival alongside national acts, whether interpreting a classic tune or performing an original, Rebel Queens consistently performs with intensity that keeps you hangin' on through the very last note.
After a good amount of arm twisting by fans, Rebel Queens decided to record the songs that they "accidentally" wrote and had been performing live. In 2017, the band's first original EP, It's Reigning Rock 'N' Roll, was born. They launched their first single "Waiting Up For You," earning the band radio airplay on several Minnesota radio stations. The latest Rebel Queens EP, Wild Ride, was released on CD and digital platforms on August 30th, 2019. The tracks on Wild Ride weave powerful vocals and impressive instrumentation with lyrics that speak to the significance of music and finding your place in the universe. Each song is drenched in the poetic thoughts of an off-beat late-night-bar-dwelling musician that thrives on cynically discussing philosophical and existential matters. It's a Wild Ride to the other side, but music soothes the soul.
The EP’s single, "Hey Yeah" is a bad ass classic-rock influenced siren call that summons nature to “Save my soul.” The song is an expression of self-acceptance despite the unknown. The “Hey Yeah” music video was filmed on the street and childhood home of Tiffany (lead vox). The video features a variety of characters and their chosen wild rides. Which, to the viewer's delight, is mostly attractive classic cars & motorcycles. The "Hey Yeah" music video is featured in City Pages best local music videos of 2019.
