The Cleveland, Redcar 

An excellent performance last night, brilliant band.  You guys can really Rock and engage with the audience! Good musicianship by the guys and exhuberant vocals and great energy by Lara. I especially enjoyed  your version of 'I love Rock n Roll' originally by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts , an interesting powerful take on the Tom Petty song and title track for your group.
  Looking forward to seeing you live again. Respect! Take Care and God Bless.

Poachers Cottage Callerton 

Fab night at the Poachers Cottage in Callerton, thanks to American Girl! We've seen you a few timed but liked this particular venue x

Here at American Girl we think that if someone is willing to drive 61.2 miles (as per google maps) to see us, that should be honoured, so Charlie and Vanessa from Saltburn, who came to tonights gig in Callerton, we salute you. Charlie wanted to see us one more time before he goes off to the rigs for a month and so made the effort to drive the distance with his daughter Vanessa, and I think he made our night more than we could have made his. But a great night it was.


Seaham Carnival 

American girl,one of the best live acts around in the north east...!!!

 Lara, you and the guy's were excellent as usual but Iron Man had a few problems with the stage steps Ha! Ha! 


Houghton Comms Rock Night

Another hot and sweaty night at the Comrades as the temperatures hit the low 30's outside, and even higher onstage for American Girl as they brought their high energy, highly entertaining set to the club. Playing stuff from The Stones, Tom Petty, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Robert Palmer, RHCP, ZZ Top, Cher & Pat Benetar, the band were a man down and still played a blinder giving their all to an appreciative crowd. A decent crowd for the time of year were up dancing, singing along and generally having a great night as everyone sought to keep their hydration levels up. All credit to the band, all 4 of them put heart and soul into the show and they must have lost pounds in sweat as they played for the best part of 2 hours. An outstanding show from first class musicians - don't miss them if they're playing near you - watch out for them here early next year.

Crinnions, Lanchester 


Fantastic performance tonight at Crinnion's .  Really great night had by all who attended.  Inf fact I think everyone would have gladly continued singing and dancing along until the early hours given the opportunity.  Great song selection, excellent rapport and crowd pleasers.  Hope you will be returning to Lanchester again at some point.  Thanks for a great evening.  Emma K

The Star, Newcastle 

Cracking gig at the Star last Sunday -Anthony H


The Moorcock 

The Moorcock was heaving on Friday night to the sounds of American Girl. They always pull a good crowd although i've no idea why,,, LOL. They cruised through their set of Rock and Pop with style, Energy, fun, entertainment sex appeal.... and thats just the lads, and vocalist Lara, a gorgeous all American Girl and you have an explosive recipe. Fantastic musicians, Fantastic Singer, Fantastic night and as Lara put it, "Lets Rock The Cock", they certainly did.


Thank you to all at Moorcock and American Girl for an excellent night once again :-)

Buffaloes Rock Night/Houghton Commrades 

First of all, well done, and thank you to the band, and the hardy souls, who braved Antarctic conditions to make it a memorable night, when American Girl graced the Buffalos Rock stage for the first time on Friday 18th January. Thankfully, the band arrived safely, (and on time, a superb effort!) and set up, ready to Rock the Comrades, then delivered a storming set of classic songs and not often heard gems.
Led by the lovely Lara on lead vocals, this was no winter blues night, as the band gave us a "hot town, summer in the city" Rock'n'Roll show, which was obviously helped by Lara's Californian drawl, and the band's party attitude. Standards from The Stones, Bryan Adams, the Chilli Peppers, Tom Petty, AC/DC, were knocked out along side tracks from Hole, Pat Benatar, the Devinyls and Blondie, with a blinding version of the Stevie Wonder classic 'Higher Ground', played with gusto. Enthusiasm, professionalism, and sheer enjoyment, oozed from the band from start to finish, and after they had exhausted their encores, it was time to round up the huskie's, and head off into the night for a snowball fight.
Thanks again to everyone who made it, hope you had a safe journey home, see you back at the 'Rock o' the North' next week....

Great gig last night guys,great musicians and a true rock chic as lead singer! Will defo come see yous gain! Greg.

Great gig at The Station on Friday was smokin!!! great band!-Jamie!

Cracking gig, really enjoyed it Shame nannies bedtime call meant early exit at 2nd set. Don't get to see many bands with the family , band,et all but if you get chance....make the effort and go see these guys.

Excellent band, 1 to watch. I saw them last weekend & they are gonna be a huge hit. Any friends out & about go see them. You wont be disappointed x

Great Gig at the Old England, Great Lumley, highlights: the lovely lasses from Washington getting up to sing , lowlights: the freeway pileup that occurred on stage sending Lara flat on her back, but she never missed a beat and got back up with a fine American Cackle.

Fantastic gig last night at The Old England, Great Lumley. You have an amazing strong voice & excellent band. My favourite song "Just like Jessie James" please come back & see us again. You are a stunning entertainer, makes a change having a female vocalist too x

Had a fantastic night at The Old England, Great Lumley. Would like to thank each & everyone of you for making my daughters 19th birthday one of the most memorable. Lara you have an amazing voice & not forgetting the guys you ROCK!! Can't wait to see you back at the Old England x "
