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 high-energy all female rock 'n' roll band based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The band was formed by Tiffany Christine Beamer (Lead Vocals) after delving into the musical catalog and inspirations of the 70's all-girl band, The Runaways. Joining the lineup is Danielle Pearson (Drums/Vox), Kelly Hooey (Lead Guitar), Katie Wyrd (Guitar/Vox), and Kelsey Wyrd (Bass/Vox)
A Rebel Queens show is an all-out rock 'n' roll bash with action-packed sets including hours of vintage rock covers paired with music written by the band. Their energetic stage presence pours in to each song on their unique 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, Rebel Queens consistently performs with intensity that often ends up overflowing into the audience.
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 (available at Know Name Records Mpls) and all digital platforms on August 30th, 2019. The tracks on this sophomore release weave powerful vocals and impressive instrumentation along with lyrics that speak to the significance of music and finding your place in the universe. Each track pours out all the poetic thoughts of an off-beat late-night bar-dwelling musician that thrives on cynically discussing philosophy 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 desert-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.
