Black Sabbitch
-from Los Angeles, CA
-For over a decade, Black Sabbitch has been selling out shows and wowing even the most difficult to please Sabbath worshipers, gaining a rabid fan base and the respect of critics, fans, and musicians alike. They have become festival favorites, consistently performing with some of the world’s biggest acts, in a world seldom traveled by your typical “tribute” band. Black Sabbitch was hand-picked by Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne to open the inaugural Ozzfiesta and by Dave Grohl to play Cal Jam with Foo Fighters and Iggy Pop, after which the FooFighters shared photos of Black Sabbitch saying "we were spellbound.” They recently played a headlining set at Psycho Las Vegas with The Flaming Lips, Danzig, Ty Segal, and more. Nick Zinner of The Yeah Yeah Yeahs chose Black Sabbitch to headline his curated festival Bedrocktoberfest and legendary street artist Shepard Fairey had Black Sabbitch open his Black Sabbath retrospective, Never Say Die. Electroclash superstar Peaches recently sat in as lead vocalist with Black Sabbitch for a special two-night run in Los Angeles.
Selected quotes
"Finally Black Sabbitch took the stage and pretty much melted everyone's faces. The all-female Black Sabbath... were not only talented — nailing every note of the legendary group's familiar repertoire — but were captivating to an almost distracting level’. The LA Weekly
“Those who seek the purest source of the one-of-a-kind Sabbath sound never walk away from a Sabbitch live show feeling like they settled for a dollar store version of the Birmingham four. Sabbitch offers an experience that even Ozzy and the boys couldn’t provide. After adding up Sabbitch’s raw musical talent, their ability to play the songs Sabbath were forced to raise to the rafters...the only label you could possibly hang on Black Sabbitch would have to be “undeniable.” NEW TIMES Phoenix
Black Sabbitch restores the swing and speeds (to the Sabbath catalog) capturing the potency and intensity of the original Sabbath. Times Union – Albany NY “Don’t call Black Sabbitch a tribute. They are the female version of Black Sabbath. They bring a new shine to old doom. Indeed, they rock the living hell out of Sabbath’s catalog.” San Diego Reader
“Cover bands, tribute bands, and the rest, we don’t need most of ’em, but we do need Black Sabbitch.”
“We were spellbound.” Dave Grohl / Foo Fighters

Ancient Mariner
-from San Francisco, CA
-Ancient Mariner unleashes the full power, performance, and style of a classic Iron Maiden concert. "If you are an Iron Maiden fan, Ancient Mariner is a must see!!!  It was kinda like seeing Iron Maiden live at a very intimate venue." 
(John Tuckness - Reno Concert Photography

"Ancient Mariner are fantastic... they do an unbelievable job retelling Iron Maiden's ancient tales of harlots, killers, and phantoms with phased plasma rifle accuracy."  (Inzo Der Barrakuda - ArnoCorps)

"Ancient Mariner was awesome!!! Best Iron Maiden cover band ever. Everybody needs to find them on facebook."

"Damn, that was a pleasant surprise. Met a friend at Bender's and didn't even know you were on -- and got my face rocked right the hell off. Y'all nailed it -- and I love that you mixed in some deeper tunes that I've never even see the real Maiden play live."

"Ancient Mariner put on another great show.  This show featured almost all different set list from the most recent nearby show in Santa Rosa a couple months ago."
