11AFTER....Akron, Ohio’s very own “Bad Girls of Rock n' Roll” are five years strong and got it going on! With three independently produced CDs and two videos under their studded belts, this five-female-
D Cruise, lead singer/songwriter, is the driving force behind this amazing act and draws on her unique life experiences for both her lyrics and her incredible performing presence. Her raspy growl, radio-ready tunes and wild stage antics combine for the ultimate ‘rock chick’ experience. The line up further consists of Cyn Smith, a jaw-dropping lead guitarist who has shared the big stage with a number of major acts from across the country. Newest bad girl Rose is a high powered bass player that brings her own style of pumping energy. Drummer extraordinaire June pounds out the backbone and guitarist Christina Crago, formerly of local girl band legend Level C, rounds out the sound with her own style. Individually unique and collectively together a strong music experience beyond compare.
11After has extensively toured across the U.S. and and on the east coast in particular. They have seasoned their sound locally at Cleveland’s House of Blues, for years at Akron’s biggest summer party ‘Live at Lock 3’ and many other venues, dive bars and clubs too numerous to mention.
