Britt Lightning is the lead guitarist for the all-female 80’s rock band Vixen. She is also the Musical Director at Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp. I caught her in a rare moment at home in between tour dates. We had a great talk about life on the road with her Vixen bandmates and how she balances spending time with friends and family while maintaining such a busy schedule for work.
We talked about some of the more interesting places; cruises, festivals, small gigs all the way to stadium tours she has played and find out what is the most influential place she visited. She is excited to play in Japan and Australia next year. Britt was able to fill her downtime during Covid as the musical director for the Rock’n’Roll Fantasy Camp setting up virtual camps between fans and musicians.
Make sure to follow Britt on her social media pages to see where she’ll be performing next.
