||Singer Janet Gardner, drummer Roxy Petrucci and bassist Share Ross Pedersen announced that they are honoring their friend and band mate, guitarist and founder of Vixen Jan Kuehnemund by performing as Vixen in 2014. Jan Kuehnemund passed away after losing her battle with cancer.
The group explained: "The band was committed to reunite in 2012 but Kuehnemund's cancer diagnosis caused what was thought of at the time as a delay. Sadly however after a fierce battle Kuehnemund succumbed to her illness in October 2013, thus the reunion was not meant to be. After discussing the idea with friends and family as well as lead vocalist from most recent lineup, Jenna Sanz-Agero, it was agreed that it was the right decision for the three surviving definitive members to carry on as Vixen."
Singer Janet Gardner commented: "We've been hearing the fans ask for this and while it will never be the same without Jan, we believe in our hearts it's what she would have wanted."
Joining forces with their JSRG bandmate, guitarist Gina Stile, Vixen will be performing at select festivals and showcase dates in 2014. The first official Vixen performances will take place on the Monsters of Rock Cruise departing from Miami, Florida on March 29th.
