Adrian Conner and her band know all the tricks to conquering the love of an audience with a utility belt of versatility; loud rock, acoustic rock, stunning original material, peppering the experience with songs you know and love to air guitar. No stranger to playing guitar on the actual bar, Adrian and her band will demand your attention and win your heart.
Described as “Exciting, rambunctious and kinda scary” by Guitar Player Magazine; Adrian delivers a wealth of material from interpretations of acoustic metal songs like Zeppelin’s Bron-Y-Aur stomp with a sweet voice, to her more aggressive snarling guitar originals as well as her pop rock material. Some of which are co-written with Kathy Valentine of the Go-Go’s which won Adrian a Best of Austin Music Award.
Her affection for all things rock n’ roll is evidenced by the fact that she has spent 15 years as the lead guitarist in Hell’s Belles, the highly touted all female AC/DC tribute band from Seattle of which Angus Young himself is a fan. She serves in a similar capacity for the Judas Priest tribute Belles Bent For Leather.
Despite spending an enormous amount of time touring in support all three projects, the Austin/Seattle native rocker finds plenty of time to feed her songwriting soul by touring with her solo band. Some highlights of which include opening for Concrete Blonde, Brody Dalle, the Texas Tornados.
