Almost Queen- Highly Acclaimed Tribute To The Iconic Rock Band Set To Play Brooklyn Bowl On Friday, 31, May ( and we cannot wait!)

Almost Queen will be performing at Brooklyn Bowl this Friday Night

Queen, they have been more in the spot light this year with the release of Bohemian Rhapsody and the Oscar wins then they have been in a long time. They have never been gone however, no, they are not the same band that they were 40 years ago, Freddie has returned to the heavens and “Deaky” ( John Deacon) chose many years ago to retire from the insanity of the business while Brian and Roger continue on with Adam Lambert singing those iconic songs, ever reverent of the man who wrote a good many of them and led the way for performers like him to be able to do what they do today.

But Queen, and their fans in particular, have never been gone really- they still honor the legacy and there are those who long for those days of our lives and those who long for something they were either too young or not yet here to experience. Enter “Almost” Queen…

The highly acclaimed tribute band has been donning the costuming and singing the songs Messers Mercury, May, Deacon and Taylor wrote, recorded and performed decades now ago. Their press kit simply states and we quote-
” The most authentic QUEEN live show since the days of QUEEN themselves. This deliberate 4 piece band boasts an undisputed live show consisting of four part harmonies and genuine costumes while captivating the live energy that is THE ultimate Queen experience. “

By Sylvia Lee

Editor/ Staff Writer and Co-Founder of ZRock'R Magazine. Sylvia has worked in and around music since she was 16, though it has always been a part of her life. In radio ( her last radio job was in the mid-90's at KKLZ before departing for other pursuits) , as part of various tour support/production crews, in promotion of both bands and even clubs (recipient of the Climax/Plan C Entertainment Blackberry Award in 2007 for her work as production manager of the Las Vegas MC Jin show ) and in rock journalism with a music column in the late 80′s called MusicLine in the Independent News in central Illinois. Sylvia has also has written articles and reviews for SCOPE, The Reader, Las Vegas Music Scene Magazine, Vegas SoundZ (she was PR director for LVMS where she helped push a little known and upcoming at the time Vegas photographer then known as Shane O'Neil Dobbs ( he later dropped the Dobbs), landing him his first concert shoot for a publication with Nine Inch Nails at the Thomas and Mack in '95) and she also did PR for Vegas SoundZ when they were in print). She also was a contributor to LA’s FIX Magazine. Sylvia credits her love of rock journalism and working in and around it to the person she calls the “First Lady of Rock n Roll Journalists” The legendary Jaan Uhelszki who co-founded influential music publication CREEM Magazine, but also gives a nod to the women who were also involved in the early days like Lisa Robinson and photographer Lynn Goldsmith. Sylvia's eye for talent and ear for great music have never failed her. Ever sarcastic with a love for Metal, Grunge, Punk, and Industrial Music; the occasional glass of fine wine; enjoying some classic movies (the original Universal horror films are a favorite) or binging episodes of Monty Python's Flying Circus, Good Omens or all 4 seasons of Stranger Things - she is the fearless leader of this bunch of talented lunatics.
