Trudi’s passion for music started at an early age, playing a keyboard by ear that her Grandma gave to her and a vintage classical guitar that her Dad gave to her. Growing up in Spokane, WA, Trudi loved going to see the Rock concerts there and was heavily influenced by Van Halen, The Scorpions, Ozzy Osbourne, and of course, AC/DC!
Trudi was born and raised in Spokane, WA, but you could say she “grew up” musically in Los Angeles where she moved to right out of college.
Now a veteran of the LA music scene, Trudi recalls how it all started; “The LA music scene in the 1990s and early 2000 was flooded with male bands, and male tribute bands. I was playing guitar in an all-female cover band project, doing songs from Heart, The Go-Go’s and Pat Benatar, but the songs weren’t really resonating with me. One night in 2000, I was out at a club watching an original male dominated band with a female lead singer. The band diverted from their original songs and went into a Led Zeppelin cover. The crowd went crazy. I thought to myself; if a crowd goes this crazy for one female and 4 guys doing a cover of a Led Zeppelin song, how crazy would they go for 5 females belting out hits from AC/DC, the greatest Rock n Roll band of all time? And the idea for ‘Whole Lotta Rosies’ – LA’s All Girl AC/DC Tribute band was born.
“We had our first show in April 2001 at the Coconut Teazer on the famous Sunset Strip, and it really took off from there. We were the FIRST all-girl AC/DC tribute band ANYWHERE, and that is a lot to be proud of”, says Trudi.
The band quickly became a national and international success story, opening for national acts, touring for the U.S. Troops overseas, and playing venues, festivals and events all over the country. (See BAND bio for more)
“I am beyond proud of the opportunities and experiences we have as a band. It really is beyond any of my wildest dreams. And to get to experience everything that we get to do, with the talented musicians that make up Whole Lotta Rosie’s, just brings me so much joy!” ~Trudi
