Unconsciously, it seems that rock & roll is a man’s world. Most bands have guys as lead singers, guys as drummers, guys as bass players… you get the picture. Maybe there would be a girl running the merch booth (probably somebody’s wife or girlfriend), but that’s it.
But, today… it seems that this unwritten rule is being revised. I saw not one, but two bands with female singers today (The Rendition and Men as Trees Walking). I also saw a solo female singer on a generator stage. And, friends tell me they saw a woman rocking a 5-string bass.
Whenever I see a band with a female singer or backing musician, I notice many more females in the crowd. Rock on girls – turns out that music is our world, too!
