Black Sabbitch - Ozzy Era Sabbath done with incredible authenticity by amazingly talented women.
Blare N. Bitch (Guitar), Angie Scarpa (Drums), Melanie Makaiwi (Bass) Aimee Echo (Vocals)
Black Sabbitch is the brainchild of Angie Scarpa (drums) and Blare N. Bitch (Guitar). Coming from the world of original music, each woman was already considered to be among the best at what they do, Blare having lead the all girl powerhouse "Betty Blowtorch" and Angie drumming for post punk thrashers "The Art of Safecracking". Friends for over a decade, Angie and Blare decided to get together one night and play some Sabbath and from the first downbeat of "War Pigs" they knew they had something special.
Blare's distinctive, left handed lead style and Gibson SG make her the virtual clone of Tony Iommi (with a few obvious differences.) and Angie literally learned to play using the early Sabbath catalogue as a teacher. Hearing her play, it is uncanny how similar her style is to legendary Sabbath skinsman, Bill Ward.
Having never considered the idea of doing a "tribute" or cover band, the girls decided to simply call themselves THE All Female Black Sabbath, taking the name Black Sabbitch and setting out to recruit their Geezer and Ozzy.
Melanie Makaiwi was their first choice for a bass player, having played bass with Angie in The Art of Safecracking and having lead her own band "Penny Dreadfuls". Just like Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler, Melanie began her career as a lead guitarist later falling in love with the bass and never going back. Angie and Melanie play instinctually with one another. Close your eyes and you will swear you are listening to Butler and Ward.
The vocal spot required a true star so the Sabbitch girls turned to their long time friend Aimee Echo, legendary front woman of alt-metal Ozzfest alumni, Human Waste Project and dance punk veterans theSTART. Aimee sings Ozzy's parts with a howling authenticity that gives the girls the ability to go deep into the Sabbath catalogue and play songs like Hole in the Sky and Sabbath Bloody Sabbath that you'll never hear the boys do. This ain't no wig wearing bunch of weekend warriors.
Black Sabbitch have since been selling out shows and wowing even the most difficult to please Sabbath fanatics, gaining a rabid fan base. In May of 2015 they will open for Ozzy Osbourne himself at the inaugural Ozzfiesta, hand picked by Sharon and Ozzy for the coveted spot.
The LA Weekly recently said of Black Sabbitch. "Finally Black Sabbitch took the stage and pretty much melted everyones' faces. The all-female Black Sabbath... were not only talented — nailing every note of the legendary group's familiar repertoire — but were captivating to an almost distracting level. Looking up at them from the crowd (which had erupted into a mosh pit...) I couldn't help but wonder what these women's stories were. They emanated the effortless cool of rock and roll, but with about 10 extra ounces of sexy confidence... LA WEEKLY

It's an average Saturday night at a sports bar in Chino Hills: frat boys chug beers while a man sings back-to-back Creed songs at the Karaoke lounge, but in the next room over something very different is about to go down. As the excitement builds, my friend and I grab our drinks, and head over to a live music venue attached to the bar by a smoke-filled patio.
After a reasonable cover fee and a hand stamp, we enter the door to a sea of leather jackets, good hair, band t-shirts, and every kind of person you could imagine all there with one intention: to rock out to the hits of Iron Maiden. Amps crank, mics are checked, and a gruff mans voice cuts through the chatter of the crowd with an authentically enthused and unexpected message: "HEY! Women RULE!" The curtain opens to 5 women in full command of their music and the audience. Note for note, line by line, the Iron Maidens deliver rock solid renditions of heavy metal classics, garnering love, respect, and plenty of rock hands in the air from a mostly male audience.

Divinity Roxx’s music is inspired by a mash of Hip-Hop, Rock and Soul with what we call “Funk”. She launched her musical career in Atlanta, GA and got her start touring and appearing on albums with the legendary bassist Victor Wooten, Will.I.Am, Beyoncé, and Polow Da Don. She has appeared on countless television shows including The Grammy’s, The Oprah Winfrey Show, Saturday Night Live, and Good Morning America, just to name a few. One of the many highlights of touring with Beyoncé was performing a show at The White House for President Barack Obama and his family. Despite all of these appearances with so many legendary and iconic figures, it is in her live solo performance where Divinity shines the brightest. Her ability to simultaneously play bass guitar while fronting her own band captivates audiences around the world.
Catch Divinity on the Main Stage at 8:00pm on Saturday, June 27th, 2015 at the Harlem Arts Festival! See the full lineup here: www.harlemartsfestival.com/2015-festival/
