We create music that incorporates the human feelings of love, inclusion, and awareness with those around us.

We craft an experience that will make you dance, laugh, and play your part in this beautiful yet chaotic world. It's easy enough to get caught up in the digital facade of privacy, relationships, status and what is considered "real-life." If we are not mindful, we can lose our real connection to humanity.

Let the low, dark, electro-synth lines of this music keep you focused, the drum beat to fuel your fight for personal identity, and our voices to echo an open space to feel free.

Our aim is to inspire others to harness their personal power and to connect physically to this world. Life is a balancing act, and we are here to celebrate it with you.

Jon Spencer, the BLUES EXPLOSION man who put the BELLBOTTOMS on BABY DRIVER! The Top Cat who spread the Secret Sauce in BOSS HOG! The Rockabilly Right‐Hook from Heavyweight Outlaws HEAVY TRASH! The Swank‐Fucking Master of PUSSY GALORE! Jon Spencer is back! Often imitated, never duplicated, the original NYC underground‐rock legend returns from the wilderness with twelve red‐hot hits, each more powerful than the last! This is Garage Punk for Now People! A wizard's brew of rhythm & blues and subversive dance grooves, weaponized with sci‐fi skronk and industrial attitude, calibrated for the Revolution, a ball‐peen hammer of sound guaranteed to destroy any post‐modern hangover! Pulsing with energy, clanging with excitement, and dripping with radioactive soul and raw emotion, Jon Spencer opens up his heart like never before, exploring man's modern condition with caustic guitars and outerworld crooning, asking and answering the musical question, "Is it possible to torch the cut‐throat world of fake news and pre‐fab, plastic‐coated teen ennui with the cold hard facts of rock'n'roll?" The answer is YES! SPENCER SINGS THE HITS! This is the truth serum America has been craving, the beginning of a rock'n'roll special counsel that takes no prisoners and puts the squares on ice!

Founded by Chris Freeman (bass player from iconic queer punk band Pansy Division), the idea for GayC/DC came from bouncing around names for more tribute bands with gay members after he'd been playing with the Gay Gay's (gay tribute to the Go Go's) for more than a decade. After the Gay Gay's went on hiatus, Freeman moved forward with forming a band that could be as good as AC/DC.

Freeman began by recruiting lightning-speed guitarist, Steve McKnight after meeting him online and sharing similar musical tastes. McKnight has been a part of the LA music scene since the late '80s in Cry Wolf, a melodic hard rock band that made their mark on the Sunset Strip and beyond with several major albums under their belt.

Also recruited was Karl Rumpf on rhythm guitar, who Freeman had met while on tour with Pansy Division and later worked with in a band/project called Dart. Rumpf was also in the last incarnation of the Gay Gay's, along with drummer Brian Welch who Freeman had also met while on tour. Welch had spent years touring with Extreme as their drum tech, so he was a natural fit.

This four-piece spent months looking for a gay vocalist to no avail. Finally, Freeman asked the others if HE could audition. Nervously, he did, the band agreed, and they were off--but now they needed a bassist, so Freeman recruited bass player extraordinaire, Glen Pavan, once again someone Freeman had met while on tour. Pavan had previously been keeping the low end down for LA queer punk rockers Best Revenge (who got their name from a Pansy Division song).

Now in their third year as a band, the word of mouth has been intense, even scoring a "pick of the week" in LA Weekly for a recent LA gig.

The band remains true to the music (working diligently to replicate the actual sound of AC/DC), while playing around with the lyrics and changing pronouns to suit the gay angle. Hence, TNT becomes PNP (a song about the "party-n-play" status some gay men post in their online sex ads), Bad Boy Boogie becomes Gay Boy Boogie (do you really need to ask?), and Big Balls needed ... no changing at all!

To say the band is off-the-hook live is an understatement. There is never a dull moment with all the costume changes and props being trotted out, all in the name of outrageous entertainment. Even those who say they don't like AC/DC end up being fans.
