Biography

A dominant female country band is a rare-find in any town across America, but need not look any further in these parts than the “Girlz in Black Hats.” These sweethearts of Southwestern PA are not only talented- but entertaining, unique & downright fun to watch. They pack a punch with their clean, crisp sound and edgy attitude, and they`re not afraid to play “outside of the box”. The GBH band can attract a crowd out of novelty and curiosity, and then keep that crowd entertained with their heartwarming appeal and surprising talent. Children are fascinated by their simple charm, while foot-stomping fiddle tunes can make a 90-year old get up and dance. They are definitely a "feel good", must-see show for all ages.

The group got its start from a local high-school talent show in the spring of 2005, and has since blossomed into one of the area’s most popular bands. They are young, energetic & talented, and they are out to stake their claim in a male-dominated field. GBH offers up an alternative sound to the typical male bands that sing the praises of alcohol, women and good times. These girls sing songs of women just trying to find their own place in the man's world --- sometimes singing with feeling, and occasionally ripping an attitude all of their own. They play a good mix of contemporary & classic country, sprinkled with a taste of good old-fashion rock 'n' roll. You never know what you might see next as they always keep the audience guessing. Clearly, the GBH band can stand on their talents alone, but what fun would that be? They go confidently where other bands wouldn’t dare tread. Donning black ball-caps and performing a banjo "rap" song; sliding on a pair of sunglasses and pulling out a saxophone to give tribute to a James Brown hit; or playing a Beatles tune with a fiddle, are all part of their efforts to lighten up the mood and keep the crowd’s interest. All of that said -- their hearts are still true country. They have recently recorded their very own original music CD with songs written by band members themselves, and have released the first single “Tire Tracks.” It tells the tale of a young gal fed up with trying to track down her man. “I’m tired of tracking you down, so I’m leaving you behind . . . . and . . . . all I’m leavin’ is tire tracks!” The girls also offer a touch of class with their stage look, and their overall stage presence is an asset to their show. Sporting pink guitars and attitudes, these chicks rock!

This summer, the "girlz" opened for "The Marshall Tucker Band" at the South Park Rib and Wing Fest, and also opened for 2003 Nashville Star Winner "Buddy Jewell" at the Grantsville, Maryland Truck Show. Buddy's fiddle player even came on stage with the girlz to play along with their version of "Devil Went Down to Georgia!"
