Taboo Tattoo @McAvoy'sTaboo Tattoo is a high energy, hard rocking regional showcase band that hails from the greater Maryland area. Taboo Tattoo formed in the spring of 2015 when former members of Riff Raff decided to give it a go with hard rock covers and a female front singer. The band got its initial start with Robin Herndon on lead vocals and had great success for several shows performed in 2015. By early 2016, Robin had moved to Key West and Taboo’s lead guitarist contacted Terri Dougherty about taking the band to the next level. Terri brings limitless vocal range, experience, showmanship and professionalism to her position. For both Terri and the band, it has been a perfect fit, “We all hit it off pretty much immediately. Taboo Tattoo feels like a family.”

This act is a female-fronted powerhouse that features stellar backing vocals and dynamic arrangements fueled by a precision rhythm section. Terri Dougherty (formally of Spectrum fame) is at the helm on lead vocals and is joined by Jill Gilmore and Jay Wise on backup vocal harmonies. (see Biography section for more information on band members) The success methodology of this band has involved selecting well known classic hard rock songs and embellishing them with a touch of Taboo Tattoo’s hallmark song stylings: High-Energy Drive, Engaging Grooves and Passionate Showmanship. Taboo Tattoo’s approach ensures live performances are chock full of material from artists that audiences have come to know and love, albeit rebooted with a well-received tinge of the modern edge. Taboo Tattoo delivers high octane ass kicking versions of songs by artists such as Heart, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Halestorm, The Rolling Stones, Dio, Foo Fighters, Pretty Reckless, Scorpions, Pat Benatar, Whitesnake, Extreme, Evanescence, Alanis Morissette, Black Sabbath, Joan Jett, Nugent, Godsmack, AC/DC, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Dream Theater, Rush, Adrenaline Mob, and even Living Colour. The group performs time-proven material with more than enough energy, passion and attitude to keep audiences captivated, intrigued and on their feet the whole night long.
