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).

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.
