Girls Girls Girls, the world's first and best all-girl tribute to Motley Crue, will return to the Z-plex at Stringz'n'Wingz in Streetsboro, OH, on Friday, September 27th, this time with friends and a few tricks up their leather arm bands! The band made their first area appearance back in June to a packed house and left the crowd wanting more. This time, the band will present a "Classic Album Nite" with their friends in Guns'n'Hoses, where both bands will perform the breakout albums "Too Fast for Love" and "Appetite for Destruction" in their entirety!

Girls Girls Girls has been melting hearts and faces with their rowdy renditions of Crue classics since 2007. They've opened for artists as diverse as the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and New York Times Best Selling Author Chuck Klosterman. They've headlined everything from a strip club in New Jersey to a St. Patrick's Day festival at RFK Stadium to NYC's most prominent venues. They just returned from this summer's Rock Jam festival in Grand Junction, CO, (the very festival that Motley Crue themselves headlined last year) where, as the only tribute band on the bill, they warmed up the main stage for Queensryche, Hinder, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Korn, and provided the main side-stage entertainment for the event all three days, further solidifying their status as one of the nation's most sought-after tribute acts.

Girls covers all eras of Motley Crue musically without trying to emulate one specific look, retaining some of their own originality in the process. Embodying the same decadence and spirit of rock that the world's most notorious rock band made famous, every show is a party!! Expect all the same dirty, old-school rock'n'roll fire and excitement of the live Crue, but amped up with a little more hairspray and higher heels. In addition to the classic Too Fast for Love set, the band will perform some of the band's later hits for the less diehard Crue fans.

Guns N’ Hoses is an all-girl GNR tribute band from NYC, a veritable "supergroup" of the city's hottest nationally touring original musicians, comprised of Axl Hose (Erin Marsz of The Hotcakes), Gash (Charlene Kaye of Charlene Kaye & the Brilliant Eyes), Muff McKagan (Mia Von Glitz of Mad Moon Riot), Lizzy Straddling (Emmy Wildwood of Velta), and Stevie Rattler (Gina Ilasi of Dormitory Effect). They break hearts and a few jaws every show with the raucous rock of classic GNR. They're self-described as a band that loves ‘Appetite for Destruction’, making out, brown liquor, short skirts and dirty jokes. New England Music News writes: "The Hoses are not a tribute band that sound just like the original. They are not a collection of eye-candy, thrown together that can just kinda-sorta play instruments. They are not hipster smartasses mocking the over-the-top silliness of the original. They are a talented band that really appreciates the original GNR sound, and has fun with it. Any cover band would have simply played the hits. GNH dug into the riffs, from the funky bass of Mr Brownstone, to the crying Les Paul of Sweet Child of Mine."

The Motley Crue/Guns'n'Roses tour of 1987 is widely lauded as one of the most debaucherous tours in the history of rock'n'roll. Both bands plan on bringing the same spirit to the Z-plex on September 27th.
