Ace of Cups
The Ace of Cups was an American rock band formed in San Francisco in 1967. It has been described as one of the first all-female rock bands. The members of the Ace of Cups were Mary Gannon (bass), Marla Hunt (organ, piano), Denise Kaufman (guitar, harmonica), Mary Ellen Simpson (lead guitar), and Diane Vitalich (drums).
The Ace of Cups made their debut in the early spring of 1967. Making their mark in the burgeoning counterculture of the 1960's, they shared stages with Jimi Hendrix, Jefferson Airplane, and the Grateful Dead. Check back soon for an entire website devoted to the "herstory" of this amazing band!
