This is a band of good friends having fun playing original music and relevant covers in a genre they call “electric roots”. If you’re not sure what that is think Tom Waits, Bonnie Raitt, Tedeschi-Trucks with a splash of D'Angelo. Bre’s soulful vocals and Dan’s screaming guitar prowess front the band as they masterfully pass the lead back and forth in a musical communication that is both powerful and organic. Backed by groove masters Jeff Langston on bass and Charlie Dogett on drums, they create a sound you can’t help but feel.Lisa Mann & Jason JT Thomas

As part of this year’s Siren Nation Women’s Music Festival, this show is filled with feminine brilliance! With expert support from Leah Hinchcliff (the femme fatale of funk), Dan Gildea (one of the finest guitar players in the pacific NW) and Ward Griffiths (goddess of the back beat) on drums, this show is not to be missed.
