Genya Ravan ~ Rock Recording Artist & Producer Special Guest 9/23/2022
In 2011 The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum included
Goldie and the Gingerbreads in their Women in
Music exhibit and she began work on her latest
CD, Cheesecake Girl, a collection of mostly
original material based on her Autobiography
Today, she is working with an admirer of her
efforts, Steven Van Zandt (Bruce Springsteen/
Soprano’s) as a DJ for Little Steven’s Underground
Garage on Sirius/XM; her show“Chicks and
Broads” in which she covers the often forgotten
music of female artists from the 50’s to the

she continues her long career of

"Rock and Roll Refugee," a play with music, details the astounding true events of the life of Genya Ravan, a rock and roll pioneer whose early childhood encompasses being a Holocaust survivor, an immigrant in an unsettling world and the wild ride that shapes her career—as well an impromptu performance that changes her life forever.
Before she founded Goldie and The Gingerbreads, the first successful all-female rock band in 1962, Genya Ravan was Genyusha Zelkovicz, a young girl fleeing Nazi-occupied Poland with her family in search of a hopeful start in America. After passing through Ellis Island and moving to the Lower East Side of New York City, Genyusha, now "Goldie," faced grief, poverty, abuse and loss of identity. With no one to turn to, she forged her own path, and changed history.
