Russian / Italian Punk act with an angry, energetic and powerful live show, Svetlanas have been winning over audiences across the globe. Front woman Olga’s confrontational performances and threatening vocals got the act banned from Russia in 2014. Luckily, they helped win over punk fans and rock icons alike, from Jello Biafra to Malcolm McLaren to Kiss’s Gene Simmons.
Svetlanas is not a one-woman show. In addition to Moscow native Olga on vocals, the band also features former Queens of the Stone Age and current Mondo Generator bassist Nick Oliveri. The sole American shares the stage with Italian guitarists and drummer, Mr. Ginger, Diste and Steve.
