GayC/DC is the world’s first and only all-gay tribute to the music of AC/DC! The band remains true to the music, while playing around with the lyrics and changing pronouns to suit the gay angle. To say the band is off-the-hook live is an understatement!

    GayC/DC is the world’s first and only all-gay tribute to the music of AC/DC! 

    Founded by Chris Freeman (bass player from iconic queer punk band Pansy Division), the idea for GayC/DC came from bouncing around names for more tribute bands with gay members after he’d been playing with the Gay Gay’s (gay tribute to the Go Go’s) for more than a decade. After the Gay Gay’s went on hiatus, Freeman moved forward with forming a band that could be as good as AC/DC. 

    Freeman began by recruiting lightning-speed guitarist, Steve McKnight after meeting him online and sharing similar musical tastes. McKnight has been a part of the LA music scene since the late ‘80s in Cry Wolf, a melodic hard rock band that made their mark on the Sunset Strip and beyond with several major albums under their belt. 

    Also recruited was Karl Rumpf on rhythm guitar, who Freeman had met while on tour with Pansy Division and later worked with in a band/project called Dart. Rumpf was also in the last incarnation of the Gay Gay’s, along with drummer Brian Welch who Freeman had also met while on tour. Welch had spent years touring with Extreme as their drum tech, so he was a natural fit. 

    This four-piece spent months looking for a gay vocalist to no avail. Finally, Freeman asked the others if HE could audition. Nervously, he did, the band agreed, and they were off—but now they needed a bassist, so Freeman recruited bass player extraordinaire, Glen Pavan, once again someone Freeman had met while on tour. Pavan had previously been keeping the low end down for LA queer punk rockers Best Revenge (who got their name from a Pansy Division song). 

    Now in their second year as a band, the word of mouth has been intense, even scoring a “pick of the week” in LA Weekly for a recent LA gig. 

    The band remains true to the music (working diligently to replicate the actual sound of AC/DC), while playing around with the lyrics and changing pronouns to suit the gay angle. Hence, TNT becomes PNP (a song about the “party-n-play” status some gay men post in their online sex ads), Bad Boy Boogie becomes Gay Boy Boogie (do you really need to ask?), and Big Balls needed ... no changing at all! 

    To say the band is off-the-hook live is an understatement. There is never a dull moment with all the costume changes and props being trotted out, all in the name of outrageous entertainment. Even those who say they don’t like AC/DC end up being fans. 

    Who can blame them? Book ‘em and see for yourself!

    “There are plenty of tribute bands playing the Southern California club scene, but only one, five man combo, The Spice Pistols, pays tribute to two different, completely unrelated bands and genres, in this case pop group, the Spice Girls and punk pioneers, the Sex Pistols. Performing in drag, this tongue in cheek show is high in spectacle, with plenty of props and skits to keep the momentum going. Fans of either group will enjoy the bands renditions of songs such as “Anarchy in the U.K.” and “Say You’ll Be There,” but anyone who loves rock ‘n’ roll and has a sense of humor will love every second of their performance.” – Beach & Bay Press / August 10, 2017

    Based in San Diego, the Spice Pistols also include original material in their set, such as their debut album’s title track. The band has performed in venues ranging from the Casbah in San Diego to the Whiskey-A-Go-Go in Hollywood, anever leaving audiences less than thoroughly entertained.

    John Risdon AKA Ginger Binger Spice – lead vocals
    Michael Fairchild AKA Maybe Baby Spice – vocals, rhythm guitars
    Sppike Mike Muellenberg AKA Hairy Scary Spice – bass guitar
    James Hughes AKA Slosh Posh Spice – lead guitar
