Sometimes, female led music can be unappealing to the male audience for one ridiculous reason or another. The same actually goes for the female audiences, but The Aquadolls are a trio of creative and artistic ladies who perform smooth vocal harmonies and great music that keeps you wanting to listen to more, no matter your gender or age.
The Aquadolls were created in La Mirada in 2012 by Jacqueline Proctor, but made a big splash in 2020 with their cover of Lash’s “Take Me Away.” Since the band’s inception, drummer Proctor has been joined by Keilah Nina on bass and Melissa Brooks on lead vocals and guitar. In their time together, they have opened for Pennywise and X, played festivals with Weezer and Rancid, and toured with White Reaper.

Their energetic performances and tongue-in cheek lyrics have helped propel them forward in SoCal: Playing shows such as Ohana Festival, Beach Life Fes, and Lollapalooza.
They caught the ear of so many this past year with the Waitresses “Christmas Wrapping” cover.
Hitting the press circuit on local radio shows like TNN RADIO with Jimmy Alvarez and Tuna on Toast with Ted Stryker (formally of Los Angeles radio mega giant, KROQ). Performing at a coveted Punk Rock & Paintbrushes event. The Aquadolls are drawing attention in all the right ways everywhere they turn.
These musicians take creativity to the next level in their clothing and wear what they like, not what’s popular at the mall that season. They remind others that it’s okay to be comfortable in your own skin and art.
The Aquadolls are going on a US tour to support pop-rock band Sitting on Stacy this March through mid-April. They kick off the tour at The Constellation Room in Santa Ana on March 10th and return to SoCal with two shows, one at The Roxy in Los Angeles on April 15th and the last show of the tour on April 16th in San Diego at SOMA on the main stage.
Make it a point to catch these amazing musicians and you are guaranteed a good time!
