“Another side of heavy metal with Thunderbox
There is a perhaps surprisingly large demographic of our society for whom the concept of heaven would be a heavy metal tribute band comprised of hot babes.
If so, Saturday's doorman at the Backstage Rock Bar in Groton will be St. Peter - because that's when and where Long Island's Thunderbox hits town. And just because they're female doesn't mean this is a watered-down set list with goofs like Poison.
Indeed, look for blistering renditions by the likes of Iron Maiden, Metallica, Motorhead, Motley Crue, Danzig, and AC/DC.
What else is cool? Well, Thunderbox drummer Natalie Mustang is a New London native. Plus, virtually every picture ever posted of Thunderbox shows the women holding beer or whiskey. In other words: they're the real deal.”
“THUNDERBOX is NY's all-girl, all-metal tribute band composed of 4 of the hottest, most shredding-est babes on the east coast - Gina Stile (formerly of Vixen, Poison Dollys, & Envy) shreds on her guitar with the power & prowess of all the metal guitar greats rolled into one frenzy of blurred picking & blond hair. Bass player Sammy D. Evil (of Nassau Chainsaw, Jungle Junkies, Shira Girl) pounds her bass and fills every song with earth-shaking bottom-end; the Cliff Burton of female bass players! Natalie Mustang (formerly of Mustang Cobra, Sasquatch & the Sick-A-Billys) beats her drums mercilessly, creating the pounding rhythm that every member of the audience can bang their head & raise their horns to. THUNDERBOX is one of the greatest new bands to emerge from the Island and beyond, definitely do not miss your next chance to see them!”
