What part of the DC region is the artist tied to and how? Where is the artist's current home base if not DC : We are from all over the Greater D.C. area. PJ and I (Gabi) live in DC proper (Shaw & Mt. Pleasant) and the rest are located in Virginia. I'd say we are most tied to the U street area and to Arlington/Falls Church area of Virginia.
At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band related to persons/events in Washington DC area: 1. We just played at the Kingman Island Bluegrass & Folk Festival May 13, 2017! It was a blast and awesome to see all the local music and support.
2. We've played a lot of local DC spots such as Black Cat, DC9, Velvet Lounge.
3. We will be playing at Jammin Java on 8/7 as a part of a local scene show.
Anything else we should know, or you want to share: We are currently in the throws of working on our second EP hoping to have it out by the new year!
