Starbreakers SOLD out show with photo gallery
THE STARBREAKERS made their debut at The Viper Room in West Hollywood, California on Saturday March 11. The all-star cover band which features five of the most talented female musicians in the Los Angeles area played to a sold out crowd. They unleashed their take on some metal classic by such bands as Dio, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden and Alice Cooper.
Nita Strauss originally invited Jill, Courtney and Lindsay to play on a few Iron Maiden songs at Lucky Strike in Hollywood for her birthday bash. Emily joined up a few weeks later as so began The Starbreakers.
According to guitarist Nita Strauss, when asked if they would do any original material, “It’s just a fun side project for us while we have free time between our main bands.”
A couple guests joined them as well. Alicia Vigil (VIGIL OF WAR) on bass during “Welcome to the Jungle” and Katt Scarlett (FEMME FATALE) backing vocals for “Poison.”
THE STARBREAKERS are: Jill Janus (HUNTRESS, CHELSEA GIRLS) – Vocals, Nita Strauss (ALICE COOPER, THE IRON MAIDENS) – Guitar, Courtney Cox (THE IRON MAIDENS, FEMME FATALE) – Guitar, Lindsay Martin (THE AVIATORS, GLAM SKANKS) – Drums and Emily Ruvidich (MISTY DAY) – Bass.
