In the era of 1950’s-1960’s Second-Wave feminism, it was music of The Girl Groups (The Ronettes, The Shangri-Las, The Crystals, etc.) that defined the sound of popular music. It was music that gave voice to the challenges and dreams of women, made international superstars out of many – particularly women of color – and united America during the Jim Crow and desegregation years.
Inspired by the significant roles these women played during this era of our musical heritage, “She’s A Rebel: A Girl Group Tribute” concert will take place on Friday, February 13th 2015 in Nashville, TN at The Mercy Lounge.
