IT has been a long way to the top for Australia's only female AC/DC cover band Her Way to Hell.

Murray's Place in Murwillumbah will host the five piece band on March 9, in what's promised to be a 'high voltage' affair.

"We put to bed any concerns our audience may have very quickly of five girls being capable of playing AC/DC the way it should be played," lead guitarist Maree 'Angus' Taylor said.

"From the word go we get straight into our high voltage show with just as much guts, glory and rock and roll know how as our fellow male musician counterparts in the music scene."

Her Way to Hell have always been dedicated AC/DC fans and Taylor said they loved the widespread appeal of the Aussie rock icons.

"AC/DC's music just does something to you. Whether it's reaching for the volume button when an AC/DC song comes on the radio or iPod or when seeing a live show, you just can't help but to move and swagger along to their songs," she said.

The Brisbane based musicians formed the group after two members returned from a fateful visit to the United States.

"I was with another band member in the States a few years ago, we came across one of the original all girl AC/DC tribute band called, Whole Lotta Rosies'," she said.

"Their show just blew us away with the idea of bringing this concept back home, we also found out that the US version had won a prestigious award in the states three years in a row for most outstanding tribute band."

The girls were keen to bring AC/DC classics such as Thunderstruck and Back in Black to Murwillumbah, in a well packaged homage to their favourite rock outfit.

Opening act Chick Flick will start the free night by belting out crowd favourite rock anthems when Murray's Place opens the door at 8pm.
