The band was formed by lead singer Sabrina Petrini. Her journey in LA started at MUSICIANS INSTITUTE in Hollywood. One of her first shows was at a packed HOUSE OF BLUES. A month after that she signed a record deal and began the recording with B.A.M and UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP. She continued her success with being on MTV and LOGO TV with her music video "U MAKE ME (LOL)".
She got nominated for best pop artist at LA MUSIC awards and best pop song at HMMA Awards 2010. Her first album release show was at PALLADIUM, Hollywood, CA for 4.000 people but that was nothing compared to her biggest gig of her life at the AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS 2010. But it was after meeting and working with Kim Fowley (Joan Jett, GNR) and Noizee (Marky Ramone) Sabrina finally found what she really wanted and that was to play in a band again. She decided to take a break from the backing tracks and dancers and started focusing on finding a new sound, her sound.
She left her record deal and manager to DIY and shortly she ended up back in the studio experimenting with melodic European and edgy American sounds. She named the band KINGQUEEN after her artist name and she was no longer a solo artist. After months of playing with different musicians she finally found the right band members which are Dario Comuzzi on the guitar, Marky DiNitto on the bass and Edoardo Trancredi on the drums. Rehearsals turned in to songs and songs turned in to their album "GET LOUD". They recorded the album on to a tape machine in a little studio in Norco, CA.
Sabrina and her guitar player Dario Comuzzi produced the album and the music was mixed and mastered in Italy by Frank Nemola (Vasco Rossi). It's available on iTunes and Spotify.
2013 has been a good year for KINGQUEEN. The band won LA's Hard Rock Rising battle of the bands and performed at Universal City Walk. KQ debuted as a band on the mainstage at the House Of Blues and opened for STEEL PANTHER. KQ is now focusing on making more music, stay tuned for some upcoming singles and music videos and keep getting LOUD!!
KINGQUEEN spent 2009-2013 touring and playing at some of the most legendary venues at the Sunset Strip and all over America such as the Avalon, Palladium, The Roxy, Whisky a Go Go, The Viper room, Hemingway's, Boardners, LA derby dolls, The House Of Blues, Down and Out, Hard Rock Cafe, The Ritz, OC Fair, Castro Fair, ELEVEN, American Music Awards, The Joint, The Vinyl and many more to come.
