"One small step for band, one giant leap for bandkind"
A power trio is a rock and roll band format popularized in the 1960s. The rise of the power trio was made possible in part by developments in amplifier and electric guitar/bass guitar technology that permit the instruments to provide more sound than before. Particularly, the advent of electric bass guitar defined the bottom end and filled in the gaps.
Queen Electric is a brand new power trio made up of Scot Sax (vocals, guitar), Phil D'agostino (bass) and Mike Pietrusko (drums), influenced by artists like T Rex and albums like Bowie's "The Man Who Sold The World". With a nod to the Jimi Hendrix Experience and more current influences like Jack White, the performances are spontaneous and feature the blazing sound of a hollow, aluminum telecaster. All this set to the words and music of Scot Sax, a Grammy award-winning songwriter who fronted the popular band Wanderlust (RCA) and has opened for The Who and toured with Robert Plant.
