Since reforming in the mid ’90s, Vixen have played musical chairs with the members a little. That band now has Femme Fatale star Lorraine Lewis fronting it alongside classic lineup peeps Roxy Petrucci and Share Ross (with guitarist Jan Kuehnemund sadly no longer with us). Singer Janet Gardner left the band earlier this year to focus on her solo career and, with Lewis doing a great job with Vixen, that has proven to be an astute move. In 2017, while still with the band, she released her self-titled solo debut, and then this year put out Your Place in the Sun, which sees her working with her husband and guitarist Justin James. She’ll be playing her solo stuff alongside the Vixen hits at the Whisky — it should be a great show.

Janet Gardner plays at 8 p.m. on Sunday, July 28 at the Whisky A Go Go.
