Congrats to The Bangles.
The Women's International Music Network (the WiMN) is thrilled to announce that it will honor The Bangles as part of the 2015 She Rocks Awards. Recognizing women who stand out as role models in the music industry, the live awards event takes place on January 23, 2015 at the Anaheim Hilton Hotel during the NAMM Show.
Formed over 30 years ago by guitarists Susanna Hoffs and Vicki Peterson and drummer Debbi Peterson in a Brentwood, California garage, The Bangles were the first all-female band to chart at Billboard's No. 1 for four weeks in a row. The band has been synonymous with hits like "Walk Like an Egyptian," "Manic Monday," "Hazy Shade of Winter," "Eternal Flame" and many more.
Reunited in 1999, The Bangles will be featured in a special tribute during the event as they celebrate the 30th anniversary of their first major label release, All Over the Place.
"The She Rocks Awards shines a light on unique women working in every facet of the music industry," commented guitarist Vicki Peterson. "We're really honored to be a part of this year's event."
The 2015 She Rocks Awards will be co-hosted by platinum-selling guitarist and solo artist Orianthi and the Women's International Music Network founder and writer/editor Laura B. Whitmore. Now in its third year, the She Rocks Awards pays tribute to women who display leadership and stand out within the music industry, and has become a standard at the NAMM Show.
The She Rocks Awards will take place on January 23, 2015 from 6 to 8:30PM in the Pacific Ballroom at the Anaheim Hilton Hotel. A NAMM badge is not required to attend the She Rocks Awards. Tickets for the event can be purchased at the WiMN site.
If you are a woman and you rock, you should care about this event and support it any way you can.
