Ziggy Stardust fell to Earth once upon a time. It is the mission of Major Tomboys to pay tribute to his god-given ass.

Major Tomboys is Portland’s all-femme David Bowie tribute band founded by Renée Muzquiz (lead singer/guitar) and Lauren Hatch (keyboard) in the summer of 2018. There was a flash of lightning, an explosion of glitter, and suddenly a band was formed (the real story is a lot less exciting and involves the magic of Craigslist, but don't tell anyone).

As self-proclaimed Bowie nerds, Major Tomboys love to dress up in costumes and share their interpretations of his music with those who also long to rock out in their frock coats and bipperty bopperty hats. From “Wham bam, thank you, ma’am” to “Ch-ch-ch-changes,” they’ll have you singing along with your favorite tracks before you know it.

In the past, you may have seen them at Pride parties, Rose City Rollers’ events, the Risk/Reward Festival and more. Joined by Ruba Tuesday (lead guitar), Sarah FitzGerald (bass), Jolie Clausen (drums) and Dani Tanzella (saxophone), they are finally back from their pandemic hiatus and ready to be rockin’ rollin’ bitches for you!.

Shawna Pair makes energetic and lucid art pop. 
Influenced by New Wave, New Jack Swing, Shoegaze, Classic Rock, EDM, Disco, and 80s tv theme songs, Shawna’s songwriting is visceral and vulnerable.
She grew up a Southern Baptist preacher’s kid in rural Alabama and later came out as trans.
Lyrically, Shawna deals with tough relationships and grasping for intimacy from disenchanted partners which became lessons for Shawna to believe in herself.
Shawna’s music is about getting free. Despite many loved ones fighting to keep her in a box.
