“Katrina Bolyard, Jennasen Updike, Dave Hall and Sam Jackson jump right into a high-energy set of soul-pop tunes, receiving increasing levels of approval from the large crowd on hand, with listeners gradually inching closer and closer to the stage as each song unfolds. Considering this scene has recently become a regular one at manners, please. shows, however, fans might be surprised to learn of the band’s comical origins.

“What started as a lady-driven two piece has grown into a fully realized rock n roll band. still fairly new on the scene, these girls/guys have talent, eclectic taste, and drive – entertaining and passionate performances with catchy hooks, excellent riffs, and pop-soul attitude. everyone is talking about this band – and they love it.”
