[PORN QUEEN @ e-Lake festival, Echternach, 2015]

Porn Queen is a Hard Rock band active since 2007, created by two residents of Luxembourg, Lucas Ferraz (vocals and guitar) and Fred Barreto (guitar) of Brazil. Yves DeVille (Drummer) and Daniel Fastro (bass) of Luxembourg joined the group shortly after. In spring 2015 Fred left the band and was replaced by Régis Rolando. Their music is influenced by 1980's hard rock (Guns'n'Roses, Aerosmith, ....) with a touch of Blues and Rock n' Roll.

On July 5th, 2010, the group had the great opportunity to be the opening act for legendary guitarist Slash (former guitarist of Guns'n'Roses) at Rockhal in Luxembourg which led to further collaborations between Slash and Porn Queen. After the success of these concerts, the group's reputation increased rapidly gaining much notoriety within the Rock scene.

In 2011, Duff McKagan's Loaded (former bassist of legendary band Guns'n'Roses) had Porn Queen open up for his concert at the “Splendid” in Lille and later the same year had the opportunity to play at le Zénith” in Paris with Slash performing for over 6500 rock fans.

In September 2011, Porn Queen won the NetRock festival which was broadcasted worldwide over the Internet. They not only got selected by the professional jury but also earned more than 13,000 votes in their favor by the audience following their 15 minutes performance online.

For the first quarter of 2012, the group was invited to play a European tour with American rock guitarist Richie Kotzen (ex-member of "Poison” and “Mr. Big") playing 16 gigs in 12 countries, covering Luxembourg, France, UK, Netherlands, Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Austria and many others.

For summer 2012 Porn Queen was on the bill of some major rock festivals in Europe such as Sonisphere France sharing the stage with Faith No More, Marilyn Manson, Machine Head, Evanescence, Wolfmother, Soulfly, The Darkness ... Rock A Field playing with Motörhead, Billy Talent, Snowpatrol, Mastodon, Dropkick Murphys, The Kooks ... In June the band had the honour to open for the third time a Slash show, this time in Rockhal Luxembourg.

As a result of this great show Slash invited Porn Queen to open up 2 shows of his South American tour, on the 2nd of November 2012 in Rio de Janeiro Brazil and the 9th in Porto Alegre Brazil.

On April 1st 2014 Porn Queen had the privilege of supporting the legendary Deep Purple.
