Listen now to 'Hot Stuff'
Hot Stuff is really about giving it a
go even if you have people telling you you
can’t. It’s having the passion to just
keep going and push life as far as you
want. We definitely take this attitude
as a band and recognise it in the great
many bands who have inspired us.
While THREE BROTHERS were growing up playing air guitar along to some of the world’s biggest rock bands, TWO BEST FRIENDS not too far away were helping each other discover the same kind of music. It was only a matter of time before the five of them ended up working together, grabbed by the ENERGY of their idols and driven to create their own HIGH-OCTANE show to captivate today’s audiences. That show is BAD ACTRESS and we want to be part of the reason you keep going to see live music.

ACTRESS / MODEL
RAISING ROCKERS is a journal of observations by the father of the brothers as they first discovered and then pursued their passion to produce and perform rock music. It charts their story through childhood, winning a talent show and on to playing in various bands such as their own power trio, Civil Punk, and finally to making up three-fifths of BAD ACTRESS. There are encounters with numerous bands in the live music scene, including a few well-established musicians associated with some big names in the industry. Colour is added in the form of interviews with some of the many musicians, bookers, promoters and others who worked with, performed with or simply watched the band develop.
