Guns N’ Hoses and Mrs. Smith @ The Bowery Ballroom 3/28


Welcome to the Vajungle! Voted ‘Best Tribute Band’ by the Village Voice, Guns N’ Hoses is a veritable supergroup of the city’s hottest internationally touring musicians. They break hearts and a few jaws every show with the raucous rock of classic GNR. Slash and Duff McKagan happened to drop in on one of their rehearsals the day before their sold-out show at LA’s Viper Room and said “You girls sound like our mirror.“ Slash later tweeted “Sounded pretty tight, I have to say…Cool chicks.” 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 ladies formed this project 7 years ago and this lineup is calling in the OG’s of Guns N’ Hoses! If you’ve never seen this raucous gang of bad girls Erin Marsz, Charlene Kaye, Mia Von Glitz, Emmy Wildwood, and Gina Ilasi play together – NOW’S YOUR CHANCE!
