From Inessa Anderson – Music Director

Queensrÿche – Here’s a chance to step out of your everyday boundaries. Although they were initially grouped with the legions of pop-metal bands that dominated the American heavy metal scene of the ’80s, Queensrÿche were one of the most distinctive bands of the era. Where their contemporaries built on the legacy of Van HalenAerosmith, and KissQueensrÿche constructed a progressive form of heavy metal that drew equally from the guitar pyrotechnics of post-Van Halen metal and ’70s art rock, most notably Pink Floyd and Queen. They’re from Bellevue, WA.
