Instrumentation: Electric guitar, acoustic guitar, banjo, electric piano, synth, melodica, drums, percussion, bells, ukulele
Crowd Response: The band was politely received, and if no one sang along, it was only because the band and its highly group-singable choruses are relatively new to the world. The audience on the Over/Under patio numbered perhaps only 50, and listened respectfully, with nary a shoutout for a song from Glee to be heard. By the end of the set, much of the crowd was pleading for an encore.
Year Formed: 2010
Influences: Iron & Wine, Fleet Foxes, Nickel Creek and barber shop quartets
What's your favorite post-rehearsal or post-show ritual? "While sometimes immediately going home to sleep is a big post show/rehearsal ritual, another one is going to eat at a place like Uncle Bill's on Kingshighway. That place is the bee's knees for late-night food," says vocalist, guitarist and banjoist Stephen Baier.
