The Rebel Queens have arrived to bring you their brand of good ole rock 'n' roll.
Established in 2011, Rebel Queens is a hard-working vintage rock 'n' roll girl gang based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The band was formed by Tiffany Beamer (Lead Vocals) after drawing inspiration from the 70's all-girl band, The Runaways. Rebel Queens is a constantly evolving project that seamlessly blends vintage rock tracks and original music with the soul of Led Zeppelin and the snarl of Joan Jett. The current lineup features Tiffany Beamer (Lead Vox), Danielle Pearson (Drums/Vox), Kelly Hooey (Lead Guitar), Katie Wyrd (Guitar/Vox), and Pika (Bass). Whether performing in a small-town dive or a large festival, whether interpreting a classic tune or performing an original, Rebel Queens is all in. Their professional musicianship and all-consuming stage presence pours in to each song on their unique set list with soaring-yet-gritty vocals, brilliantly crafted guitar solos, tight harmonies, and smooth instrumentals.
After some arm twisting by fans, Rebel Queens decided to record the songs they "accidentally" wrote and had been performing live. The band launched their first single, 2016's "Waiting Up for You" from the It's Reigning Rock N Roll EP, earning the band airplay on several Minnesota radio stations. Their next release, Wild Ride, weaves driving instrumentation and razor-sharp vocals with philosophical lyrics that speak to the significance of music and finding your place in the universe. Wild Ride solidifies the band's musical style of classic influence with a modern twist. The EP’s single, "Hey Yeah" is a bad ass power-anthem that poses existential questions while proclaiming 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.
