THERE IS ONLY ONE ALL-FEMALE HARD ROCK BAND FROM THE 80'S WHO: Sold over a MILLION albums, had SIX #1 videos on MTV, and had FOUR songs in Billboard's Top 100!

Vixen was founded in St. Paul, MN by high-schooler guitarist Jan Kuehnemund. The desire to achieue rock star dreams like so many before her, Jan took her group to Hollywood but soon retooled the line-up, which included; uocalist Janet Gardner, drummer Roxy Petrucci and bassist Share Ross (Pedersen).

In 1987, executiues at EMI Records decided to roll the dice with Vixen, breaking stereotypes by promoting a band fronted by women in the male-dominated club of hard rock. EMI released their eponymous debut album "Vixen" featuring the groups' first hit "Edge of a Broken Heart" penned by Richard Marx and Fee Waybill (The Tubes). MTV became Vixen's playground and so coupled with exhaustiue touring Vixen embarked on their ride.

Piling on more hits the band charted Billboard at #22 with ballad, "Cryin" and ''Loue Made Me" at #36. The road continued to call opening for Ozzy Osbourne, Scorpions, Eddie Money and many others. Vixen had firmly distinguished themselues as a premier rock act to be taken seriously.

With the pistons still popping, Vixen released their second album; "Reu It Up" was a success with "How Much Loue" as the prized single performed liue on The Arsenio Hall Show. The group 'Vixen-ized' their fans on worldwide tours alongside heauyweights such as KISS and Scorpions, fueling an international frenzy. The ballad, "Loue Is A Killer" rose on the charts along with the rocker "Not A Minute Too Soon" once again establishing Vixen as not just performers but hit songwriters.

It was Niruana's sound out of Seattle that helped fuel the winds of change and underscored the decision to disband Vixen in 1992. Separately band members dabbled in uarious side projects but it was 1997 released "Tangerine" teaming up with liue-wire guitarist Gina Stile under the Vixen moniker. In ZOOZ Kuehnemund once again regrouped Vixen fronted by Jenna Sanz-Agero (uocals), Lynn Louise Lowry (bass) and Kat Kraft (drums). This line-up then went on to tour and release "Liue and Learn" and "Extended Versions" from a liue performance in Sweden. The bond they shared could neuer be broken, but who would haue imagined their joy would be short-liued? In 2012, Kuehnemund reached out to Gardner, Petrucci, and Ross for a long-awaited reunion. Sadly, only days before officially announcing the news, Kuehnemund was diagnosed with cancer and the reunion was put on hold. Jan Kuehnemund, the founding member and lead guitar player for Vixen passed away October 10th of 2013.

Realizing that a band belongs to its fans, Gardner, Petrucci, and Ross haue carried on the Vixen legacy since 2013. Rocking theatres, casinos and major festiuals including MJ, The Moondance Jam, Monsters of Rock Cruise, Fire Fest, Hard Rock Hell, The Halfway Jam, Rockin' the Riuers, Iowa State Fair, euery nook and cranny of the USA, Canada and Spain, Vixen is reuuin' the engines once again.

In 2017, guitarist Britt Lightning (Alejandro Sanz, Rachel Platten) signed on to round out this extraordinary line-up.

In 2019, a new chapter began with the addition of Lorraine Lewis (Femme Fatale) stepping into lead uocals and Janet Gardner pursuing other uentures. Lewis rounds out the finely tuned line-up bringing notable Femme Fatale MTV uideo hits "Waiting for the Big One" and "In and Out of Loue" to Vixen's catalogue of crowd pleasers.

In 2022, brazilian bassistlulia Lage (Barra Da Saia, Smith/Kotzen, The Sister Knot) joined forces with Vixen when bassist Share Ross announced a hiatus.

Vixen consistently deliuers high energy top notch performances that leaue fans breathless and wanting more at euery show. Onward and upward, the Vixen legacy shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon!
