About this Event

With the success of albums created by big shot producers, major label record deals, videos for MTV, quarter of a million record sales in the United States alone, New Orleans survivors Lillian Axe have persevered through the years and still to this day, record new music and tour.

From humble beginnings, the New Orleans-based hard rock act rose above the cream of the bands touring the U.S. club circuit. Within three years, the band’s live show had built a reputation that could not be denied and was becoming legendary. While performing an opening stint with Ratt, Poison and Queensryche, the guys caught the eye of MCA Records executive Irving Azoff and also Marshall Berle (nephew of Milton Berle) who, at the time, was managing rock superstars, Ratt. Irving Azoff immediately signed Lillian Axe.

Fueled by their hit single, “True Believer” followed by their cover of the Badfinger classic, “No Matter What” and VH1 Classic favorite video for “Show A Little Love,”; Lillian Axe reached the upper 100 of the Billboard album charts and with True Believer hitting number 37 with a “bullet” on radio’s R&R charts. Lillian Axe was well on their way to finally becoming a well deserved success story. In 2010, Lillian Axe was introduced to multi-platinum producer, Sylvia Massy, and a creative working relationship was formed. Sylvia Massy is best known for her work with the band Tool (“Undertow went 2x platinum and “Opiate” went platinum). She also has gold and platinum records with Green Jelly, Powerman 5000, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers. Sylvia has also worked with Johnny Cash, Prince, Sevendust, The Deftones, and Seven Mary Three. The single, “47 Ways to Die”, was remixed by Sylvia Massy and was included in the film, The Hit List starring Cuba Gooding Jr. and featured during the opening credits.

Lillian Axe was inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame on May 16, 2010. Lillian Axe is the first hard rock band inducted into the LAMHOF. Lillian Axe is enshrined along with music greats Fats Domino, Buddy Guy, Louis Armstrong, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard and Allen Toussaint to name a few.
