About Killer Queens

The Killer Queens are a Queen tribute band formed of four talented females who share a love and respect for Queen’s musical depth and intelligence. Brought to you live by Frederica Mercury, Brianna May, Rogetta Taylor and Dawn Deacon who tear up the stage and bring a great party atmosphere. Complete with Queen-like costumes and stage presence, you will enjoy the energy and charisma of this amazing foursome and find yourself singing along and cheering for an encore. All members of The Killer Queens have toured nationally and internationally through music and/or theater and are professional entertainers.


PLEASE NOTE: The road leading up to the Ski Trails Condominiums will also be closed briefly, beginning at the Village, from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. due to the fireworks display and permit requirements. Please make sure to plan your travels accordingly. As a Northstar Fire Department permit requirement, the Highlands Gondola will be closed briefly from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. During the hour-long Highlands Gondola closure, Northstar transportation will be operating a shuttle to transport guests between the Guest Auto Drop in the Village and The Ritz-Carlton Lake Tahoe. 

The Highlands Gondola will operate until 10:30 p.m. on New Year's Eve.
