Prima Donna is a female fronted alternative pop-rock band from the Philadelphia area. The band features the song writing/guitar playing of twin sisters Gina and Tina, lead vocalist Kelly, Jeremy on bass and Dave on drums.
Filling a void in today's music, Prima Donna is a band of substance. Derived from pure emotion, the music offers something old and something new. Old as in old school, the song comes first, everything is built around the song. New, as in it has a modern, edgy rock sound combined with hook oriented pop that is different enough to be called alternative. But this band doesn't wear their influences on their sleeves and these days, that's a good thing, a stand out from the rest.
The band boldly made their entry onto the indie music scene in 2003 with their first full length CD, "Not Having Fun." The CD has received rave reviews and has been played by over 200 college radio stations across the country charting in the top 10 on many including, WIIT, (Chicago, IL), and KAOS, (Olympia, WA). It's also receiving internet radio airplay and commercial radio airplay on WSTW in Delaware. Prima Donna continues to develop a reputation as an outstanding live act. With well thought out arrangements and intense presentations, their shows are always exciting. The band has captivated audiences playing notable venues including: the World Cafe Live, the North Star Bar, The Tin Angel, Puck in Philadelphia, Kenny's Castaways and the Baggott Inn in New York. The band has also performed at the International Pop Overthrow Festivals in Philadelphia and New York and the Dewey Beach Music Festival and ChickFest in Delaware.
