The Fabulous Miss Wendy Rocks HOB Featured

Written by

fabulous-ms-wendy1A young woman walks on stage, looking like a cross between Janis Joplin and Sid Viscous with the theatrics of Jimi Hendrix.  She stands looking at her amp as though she is truly in love.  She stares into the eye that is the power light, cranks it to 11 and the eruption starts. Playing fast-speed notes flying by like an Indy racecar, the Fabulous Miss Wendy now has everyone’s attention.  The crowd is thrown a left hook when they are preparing for a right-handed upper-cut.  People didn’t know what to say about the sight of a young woman playing a guitar like a true guitar hero. She sings of being a “fucked-up bitch,” to pay tribute to Led Zeppelin’s “Heartbreaker.”

The Fabulous Miss Wendy packs a youthful, innovative punch to an appreciation that is rooted from 60s and 70s rock stars. She flails her axe as though it’s a part of her body. She can shred as well as any metal enthusiast and she can strum a bar chord with as much keenness as Green Day’s Billy Joe Armstrong.   The Fabulous Miss Wendy is the type of guitar player that will make female guitarists happy and male guitarists horny—she puts on a show that should never be missed and will always be appreciated by any fan of rock ’n’ roll.
