Guns N’ Hoses is a veritable “supergroup” of the city’s hottest nationally touring original musicians, comprised of Erin Marsz (Axl Hose), Charlene Kaye (Gash), Julia Adamy (Muff McKagan), Emmy Wildwood (Lizzy Stradlin), and Gina Ilasi (Stephanie Adler). They break hearts and a few jaws every show with the raucous rock of classic GNR. They’re self-described as a band that loves ‘Appetite for Destruction’, making out, brown liquor, short skirts and dirty jokes. Slash recently happened to drop in on one of their rehearsals the day before their sold-out show at LA’s Viper Room and said “You girls sound like our mirror.” He later tweeted “Sounded pretty tight, I have to say…Cool chicks.” New England Music News writes: “The Hoses are not a tribute band that sound just like the original. They are not a collection of eye-candy, thrown together that can just kinda-sorta play instruments. They are not hipster smartasses mocking the over-the-top silliness of the original. They are a talented band that really appreciates the original GNR sound, and has fun with it. Any cover band would have simply played the hits. GNH dug into the riffs, from the funky bass of Mr Brownstone, to the crying Les Paul of Sweet Child of Mine.” Recently named Best Tribute Band NY 2014 by the Village Voice, they tote the tagline “Welcome to the Vajungle” and consistently promise to turn every show into a rockin’ ’80s hair metal party.
