Femmes of Rock and Lita Ford Live at the Weidner Center

FEMMES OF ROCK, led by rock violinist and arranger, Nina DiGregorio, will headline a brilliant line-up of female rock performers on Jan. 13, 2018 at UW-Green Bay’s Weidner Center. FEMMES OF ROCK has rocked audiences worldwide with their blistering solos, unique arrangements—not to mention their beauty and charm.

FEMMES OF ROCK stars members of Bella Electric Strings and features the music of AC/DC, ELO, Queen, Led Zeppelin, The Eagles, Jimi Hendrix, Prince, Metallica, David Bowie, Pink Floyd and others.

Bella Electric Strings has performed with artists including Beyonce, Rod Stewart, Cheap Trick, Deep Purple, Stevie Wonder, The Killers and many more.

They’ll be led in by a member of female rock royalty.

Lita Ford joins the Weidner Center line-up. Her music career started in the 1970s as part of The Runaways alongside Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame Member Joan Jett. She’s better known for staking a claim for women in the testosterone-driven metal scene of the 1980s.

Ford hit the big time, MTV and the charts as a solo artist with her breakthrough album, “Lita,” in 1988. Ford’s single, “Close My Eyes Forever,” a duet with Ozzy Osbourne, reached number 8 on the Billboard Hot 100. Her hit single, “Kiss me Deadly” peaked at number 12.

Ford followed up with albums “Stilletto” in 1990 and “Dangerous Curves” the year to follow. She backed away from her music career, but came back with a vengeance and has been rocking hard once again since 2008. Her latest album, “Time Capsule,” and her autobiography, “Living Like A Runaway” were released in 2016.

An all-star, female ensemble from the performance-based Appleton Rock School music program will open the night and demonstrate the strength of the next generation of women who are ready, willing and able to rock.

It’ll be a night of rock, a night of women’s empowerment — and a night of helping our neighbors.

A portion of the ticket proceeds will go to the YWCA of Green Bay, the Veterans Mentor Group of Appleton, the Jackie Nitschke Center and local based charities benefiting women in the Fox Cities and Green Bay areas.

If you’re tired of the name calling and mud slinging and waking up to angry headlines full of vitriol (from just about everyone), might I suggest a write-in candidate […]
