American all-female band Meanstreak from Wetcheser, New York, are reuniting to play shows, go in the studio, re-record older songs and write new ones.
“Exciting news…we are re-uniting and in the process of putting our live show together. Meanstreak will feature our original touring line up with Bettina, Marlene, Lisa, Yael & Rena. Dates to be announced soon. We are also planning on hitting the studio and re-recording songs from our 90’s demos as well as some new material in the works!” that’s their announcement on Facebook.
The band released only on album, titled “Roadkill” in 1988 and finally broke up in 1993.
Possibly, the band is mostly known for the fact that three of its members married three current and former members of Dream Theater! Guitarist Rena Sands is John Petrucci’s wife, bassist Lisa Marten Pace married to John Myung and guitarist Marlene Apuzzo, who turned to bass after Lisa’s departrure, to Mike Portnoy.
Actually, the drummer funded and produced a demo by Meanstreak, titled “The Dark Gift” in the beginning of the ‘90s, while the band opened 3 shows for Dream Theater during the same period.
