Lead vocalist & drummer, Debbi Needham, started playing drums on a old kit given to her by late '90s punk rocker, Bob Bulgrien of 'AMQA' & 'Seaweed'. In early 2010, she met Jeff Millar and formed 'Klondike Kate'. A year later, Jose Sanchez joined the band. The three piece explodes with on-stage energy, playing original old-school punk rock 'n' roll.
We play live almost every weekend - all over the Northwest. Klondike Kate!'s riot grrrl sound is unique. We're pretty intense on stage, at times, and most locals (even in Seattle) are pretty shocked when they first see us play. First timers will often stand there with their mouths open watching us. Afterwards, they applaud loudly. We don't hold back at shows...you'll never know what you'll see us do, but our shows are pretty fun! Come on out and see us!
