What to Expect
I'm upbeat, smiley, and positive, and so is my show. I am friendly and personable with the audience when appropriate and love to create a cheerful atmospere. We set up in about an hour, bring all our own equipment as needed, and take a 15-20 minute break about every hour half or so.
Our 5 person band is professional and talented; full drum kit, bass guitar, keys, lead guitar, pedal steel, and rhythm guitar. Lead female vocals with male background vocals.
We do lots of 70s covers like Janis Joplin, Queen, Linda Ronstadt, Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder, and Aerosmith; a few newer tunes from Edie Brickell and Ben Folds. Plus, we do lots of original material, some a little bit country, a lot of it more rock and roll.

Influences & Inspiration
We love the singer/songwriter bands of the 70s like James Taylor, Carole King, and Jackson Browne and the some of the harder sounds from Aerosmith, Queen, and Janis Joplin. We love guitar and piano solos and punchy, funky tunes with opportunities for creativity with arrangement and performance.
