About Juicy Newt
Queen Creek, AZ
Juicy Newt is an entirely female rock trio from Tempe, Arizona. The band was born in 2003 in the midst of boredom and aspirations of world domination through rock and roll. Not the evil, oppressive, tyrannical type of domination; more the color-coordinated, adored-by-the-masses, cheap-booze-for-all, free-lovin’ kind of domination. While Annamarie Sanchez (Guitar/Lead Vocals), Brenda Perkins (Bass/Vocals) and Sarah Bingham (Drums) were all musically trained in other realms and great lovers of all music not one of them had previous experience with their chosen instrument for this particular project. Undaunted, they proceeded to rock out with a “just do whatever sounds cool” philosophy. From day one they were making their own music… well, it was actually just noise at first but it quickly evolved in to a collection of aurally pleasing mosaics of sound. It took the better part of a year for the ladies to put together a sufficient number of happy, danceable, sing along type ditties about having one’s heart ripped out and repeatedly stomped on to comprise a set worthy of an audience. The first show at the legendary Mason Jar in phoenix cemented the Newt in the consciousness of the phoenix scene. Juicy Newt has been playing all over the valley and the southwest ever since. Have a listen. You might dig it. The sooner everyone’s on board, the sooner that whole “cheap booze for all” thing will come to fruition.
