In 2004, a small band of misfits from New Orleans became an internet sensation, gaining hundreds of thousands of hits on ThemTube (tm) for their first song "Rock-a-Bye" which was a medley of various lullabies with a classic rock sound, reaching a million hits within two months. A year and a bootlegged album publication later and they were signed in LA. Their first real album, "Who are we?" Was a huge hit, their three first singles 'Questions', 'Free man' and 'Fire in his eyes' reaching number one across the world.
Now, five albums, several rehab moments and a comeback tour later, Aces High is back on form, sellout tours across the world and an attitude that has seen a cultural revolution to fruition. Now their latest album is on the shelves '... play on' (the highly anticipated second part of their 2008 album 'If music be the food of love...') and their popularity soars. Now on their most epic tour yet 'The Royal Flush Tour' encompassing every major city in the western world and many more besides. Tickets sold out less than an hour after release, and can now be found on 'EBAG' for up to three grand.
The BAND! (need to fill all positions before allowing any misc chars, feel free to mix and match like I have to save some space.)

Misc chars can be anything from groupies, managers, PR people etc. Only once the band is filled will misc be eligible for a character.
Final note, you don't have to be from Louisiana originally, so long as you were A) there at the age of 16-18 to join the band or B) joined later as a replacement. All negotiable.
Name: Chloe Baudelaire
Sexual orientation: Lesbian
Personality: Chloe is funloving and always up for a party, holding the Aces High record for most times in and out of rehab. She puts on a good bluster, but just so people can't see the insecure teenage girl inside her. She has a completely different stage persona, along the lines of Freddie Mercury and David Bowie, her confidence there outshining her normal personality.
History: Chloe is a Louisiana local of Cajun descent, her mother bringing her up alone in the bayou, eventually moving into New Orleans itself to allow Chloe to get an education. From pretty much her first time on a guitar she clearly had a gift, by the age of eleven she was writing her own music and performing at breaktimes in school. When her mom remarried a blues saxophonist a few months before Chloe's thirteenth birthday, she gave her daughter the best gift she had ever had. Her stepfather, well known in the local blues circuit, started inviting the young girl to play with him. To this day in certain places you can find T-shirts with 'Bon nuite, mon ami!" which she used to say after a set.
When she helped form the band in 2003, she built it on the old values of rock and blues, music with soul. After their big break, she got sucked into the booze, drugs and partying... ending up deeply seated in the band's temporary breakup in 2007. When she cleaned herself up (mostly) she was just as instrumental in the reunion tour as she was in the breakup, allowing the band to power back to the top. Now she spends less time partying to keep herself focused on the soul in her music.
Other notes: Chloe is a well established chef and cook, an advocate of good old fashioned bayou food, gumbo and so on, her Cajun accent is pronounced, her voice often coming out as a soft, seductive purr when away from the stage, where it comes out as more aggressively sexy.
