ALTSO All Stars
After playing at the inaugural ALTSO London gig last June and at the fabulous ALTSO Rocktoberfest at NY's Hard Rock Cafe last October, the ALTSO AllStars are thrilled to be in the line-up for June 19. Led by ageless Chicago rockstar Ray McKenzie, the AllStars' London crew is comprised of: lead vocalist Żabel, an ElectroPop and Rock artist based in London, Eli Kay, a passionate bass and ukelele player who has just released an album of her own indie folk; Amélie Gerbet, who has drummed around Europe and Asia with ensembles from heavy metal to orchestras; her brutal cyberpunk trio Ignocide recently released their debut EP; keys man Peter O'Shea from the world of fintech who knows Ray from their time at Morgan Stanley. Young Ollie Hedin on lead guitar and vocals grew up next door to Damon Albarn and has played in rock bands since he was 13.
