Quenchers show Report

Last Friday we had a wonderful time playing at Quenchers with Rock Falls, the Van Goghs and Tin Tin Can. All three of the bands we played with were excellent.
Rock Falls started out the night with a sweet set. They had a very soft, hypnotic and melodic sound that really drew me in. Very quiet, yet powerful. Their singer has a really appealing voice, it kind of reminded me of portishead.

The Van Goghs were a strong band with great tunes and super cool guys to boot. It was our first time experiencing them live and they had a really cool retro 60′s vibe, check them out at

and finishing out the night was Tin Tin Can. This was our third time playing with them and they were excellent as usual. If you havent yet, you need to check them out at

thanks again to our friends who came out and to the bands who made the night great!
