We are an all girl band run by female musicians who meet on a Thursday every week. Our band was formed in February 2013 as part of a short term funded project, but it soon became clear that we loved making music together so much that we wanted to carry on.

We are an all girl band run by female musicians who meet on a Thursday every week. Our band was formed in February 2013 as part of a short term funded project, but it soon became clear that we loved making music together so much that we wanted to carry on.

Most of us had never played an instrument before we joined, but we now have a ‘girl power’ band that love to play, compose and perform.   Most of us play more than one instrument and all of us get involved in writing the songs. Our songs range from chilled out love songs like T.R.U.S.T to full on girl power rock numbers like Flirt.

What makes us great is how we help and support each other. We are all friends now, and new people who join our group become friends too.   We love having fun and you can often find us laughing our heads off as well as making great music.   On a typical day we could be writing songs, playing in the band, recording our tracks as well as doing singing and percussion work.   We know that anyone can learn to play an instrument or write a song, even if they’ve never done it before.

We love fund raising and have done various events to help raise money for Under the Stars and other charities like McMillan Cancer Care. We have performed at lots of Sheffield events and venues such as Tramlines, The Greystones and the Niagara Centre as part of a huge charity fundraiser which we loved and was really successful.

We love being in the Sparkle Sistaz and we are getting well known in Sheffield now. Come and see us at a festival or a gig this summer :-).
