Meet Wicked Jezebel, the Wammy Award-winning "all-female, all-gay party band"

From reader Mickey Dehn of Baltimore (Click photo to enlarge):

Wammy

Steve,
I am a member of Wicked Jezabel, the Baltimore-DC area's only all-female, all-gay party band.  We played at Baltimore Pride's block party last year, as well as DC Pride's festival, and continue to play at local venues year-round.  I would like to announce that on Feb 17, 2008, we were awarded the "Wammy Award" for "Best duo/group in Hard Rock" category for 2007 by the Washington Area Music Association (WAMA).

Quote from the Metroweekly: Published on February 21, 2008

Forget the Grammy Awards. In D.C., it's all about the Wammies, the Washington Area Music Awards (WAMA), which recognize significant career achievements by area musicians. On Feb. 17, the 22nd Annual Wammies honored the six women who comprise Wicked Jezabel. They are: Davi Anson-Dross, Pauline Anson-Dross, Ginger Starling, Mickey Dehn, Sandy Dumas and Meri Schaefer. The big-haired, all-women cover band won in the category of ''Best Hard Rock Duo/Group,'' against a handful of local bands.

''We really made some Washington history here,'' says Pauline Anson-Dross, who sings and plays guitar with the band. ''We're probably not only the first all-female band to win a Wammie, but we're the only all-lesbian band to win a Wammie in 22 years.''

Anson-Dross says in addition to ''rocking the Mid-Atlantic,'' Wicked Jezabel plans to release its first CD sometime this year. The band currently has demos and music available online. ''We're in the process of putting something together,'' Anson-Dross says.
