"They are each fronted by some of the most powerful female vocals you may ever hear. The LBians’ lead singer, Amber, has a voice that can hit the low notes and hit the high notes and everything in between. As if by destiny, Amber’s vocals mix brilliantly and perfectly with the music from Tina, Carole and Jeff to create songs that not only will Rock you, but they will kick your ass. This is some seriously good Rock music. And you all know my love of female-fronted bands. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – Women can do things with their voices that no man can. Amber is another perfect example to my claim. And, as you may also know, I love harmony. The only thing better than a great singer is when a great singer is accompanied by great harmony. The LBians have plenty of great harmony. I was really impressed with the harmony is their song Fool. It may be a “garage recording” but it is amazing good. And the song itself makes me think of Bush.

“The LBians took the stage next and this 4 piece is becoming a local favorite in Long Beach. These girls seem to be playing almost every week in the city where the sewer meets the sea. According to their bio; Long Beach band made of 4 stellar musicians: Amber (lead singer), Tina (bass), Carole (drums) and recently departed Kris (guitar). Using a unique blend of alternative rock & soul, their sound captivated the audience and created an irresistible vibe that took the listener back to the early days of rock...the climax of their covers had to be the 4 Non Blondes cover. Their version would have made Linda Perry turn her head and cheer with everyone in the crowd. They captured them 4 NonBlondes brilliantly, showing their collective edgy range. The LBians really are a special band that loves those who come to see them perform they made sure to meet as many in the audience as possible and had one of the best patio parties in recent memory as well wishers drank and got rowdy with the band. ”
