Gina Grace Interview
Out of Westwood, New Jersey comes the fast rising, all female quartet known as Pantara. Pantara has been together since the summer of 1984. They've compiled a very impressive track record for themselves in such a short time. Pantara was featured on the "Lady Killers" compilation album (New Renaissance Records); they've been featured in several music publications, including "Aquarian," and "Kerrany!", and they're receiving airplay on a number of east coast radio stations. They've also managed to find the time to showcase in New York's trendiest clubs, including the Ritz, L'Amours, Trax, Danceteria, and the Cat Club. We spoke with Pantara member Gina Grace.
