Rena Sands: John Petrucci's wife joins Judas Priestess

Rena Sands
Rena Sands, wife of John Petrucci and former guitarist in the all-female heavy metal band Meanstreak, has joined JUDAS Judas Priestess, New York City's sensational all-girl tribute to metal masters Judas Priest.

Rena Sands (Lead Guitar) was one of the founding members and the lead guitarist of the legendary all-female heavy metal band MEANSTREAK. She was also a member of Lifetime TV's "GIRLS NIGHT OUT" pit band, and more recently, Long Island's MIXXED COMPANY. Her recording credits include Meanstreak's Roadkill, The L'Amour Rocks album, The Other Side, The Dark Gift and Mixxed Company demos. She has headlined many shows with her bands as well as opening for national acts such as MOTORHEAD, MANOWAR, NUCLEAR ASSAULT, M.O.D., ANTHRAX, OVERKILL, DREAM THEATER, MOTLEY CRUE and others.

Josette (2nd Guitar) earned her heavy metal cred as a teenager in her first ever band: the all girl Hari-Kari, managed and produced by the Eric Carr of KISS. At a young age Les Paul playing Josette became a seasoned rock performer, sharing stages with the top major acts of the day. A New Jersey native, she cites her main influences as Jimmy Page and Stevie Ray Vaughn. She has done extensive touring with various artists such as Chud of Misfits & XWard, Erocktica, and Warped with Shiragirl. Josette also plays the banjo.
