The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black

For over three decades, The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black band has been wowing audiences with its combination of performance art, provocative theatrics, and straight-up rock ’n’ roll. The band is the brainchild of two esteemed artists, Kembra Pfahler and Samoa Moriki. Lead singer Kembra combines her breathtaking visuals with raw unbridled energy. Samoa on guitar delivers tasty licks and romping’ riffs worthy of rock god status. Drummer Michael Wildwood is a singer/songwriter who is noted for having played drums in NYC’s own D-Generation. Gyda Gash on bass has her own band, Sabbath Warlock, and also plays with the acclaimed all-girl tribute, Judas Priestess. She is a NYC mainstay with a rich punk history. ‘The Girls of Karen Black’ dancers joining them are Alice Moy and Christian Music. The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black band promises a visual and sonic treat for the senses.
