      I saw Becky Lee and Drunkfoot play in Melbourne a couple of years ago, amazing show! Can't think of any other one-woman bands though..

      There's Margaret Doll Rod , still performing under that name , with a guitar/drums set up , often Bluesier than she was with "Dem Dell Rods" as Andre called 'em.

       

      Honkitonkioke , From NYC (?) . She sings Country standards , with an overhead projector , using drawings on clear plastic like puppets....You'd have to see it. Words fail me.

       

      Did anyone mention the Late , Great Cordell Jackson ? The first woman to own and operate her own studio , before Bonnie Guitar. Very seldom played with a band at all. Her solo live show was a wonder to behold. Fiery , fiercely independent and FUN. GREAT INSTRUMENTALIST , SINGER AND SONGWRITER , And , a great lady , besides....Look for "Live in Chicago" on Bugout Records.

       

      Barbara Lynn sometimes plays solo . Do I have to tell you it's great ?

       

      There's more. Gotta think of 'em. You're asking a man to THINK? Ohhhh, it's gonna be a long night.

      Now I'm in the gutter ,  puking Newcastle Brown Ale and the spiciest curry they had at that Indian place....Mind , I only had one taste of it.

      IT'S GOOD TO BE FREE.

      I thought Tarquin would have sorted Malcolm & Cressida out.

      I missed this thread the first time around.  Anyway, Molly Gene simply must be included in the list:

      Haven't had a chance to see her yet, unfortunately.  She tours relentlessly, though, so it shouldn't be long.

      I'm a one woman band.  I've been doing the guitar and kick drums thing in the Bay Area for four years now.  Haven't had a lot of luck finding places to play, though.  So I'm kind of an enigma.

      Paisley Terror , It seems like the availability of venues to play live music has been getting shifted around in the Bay Area. I may be mistaken , but , whenever I'm down there , it seems like a few places have closed and maybe some new ones have turned up. Do you ever try San Jose ? I've only been to San Francisco , Berkely and Oakland in the past 15 years or so....It seems like San Jose is picking up , but , as a "One Man Band" (Though I don't call myself that...) , I understand , if you do your own thing , it's harder to find an audience. But , they're out there. You may want to start with house parties , or even busking on the street , if you can.

      Yeah, I think I'm going to start busking and playing outside of SF/Oakland.  It's mostly my fault, though - I don't have good recordings which makes it hard to book shows.  I'm working on a record this week so hopefully I'll be playing more shows soon!

      KimPaisleyTerror ,

      Yeah , I guess The Bay Area is more open about busking. In Chicago , you generally need a license , and you need to SUCK. Esp. in the subway stations , whenre the money is. But , I'm sure , if you do that , and some parties , you'll meet people who can help you get club dates. Do you know Russell Quan? He's a very nice guy. He might have some advice...

      John.
