Good Graeff
Made of twin sisters Brooke and Brit, Good Graeff (pronounced "grayf") creates

powerful folk-charged indie pop that centers on Brooke's dynamic & original vocals

and upbeat acoustic chord progressions, which are finessed into creative and

memorable pop songs by Brit's melodic, classically influenced cello riffs.

The group originated as a busking duo when the twins were 16, playing on street

corners of Sarasota, FL, where they spent their teenage years. At 18, Brooke moved to

Canada to become a foley artist (check out her imdb) and Brit studied marketing and

international business then packed up her bags to travel around Europe and India,

then eventually settled in Hanoi, Vietnam. Brooke joined her there in 2012, and Good

Graeff was born into its second life, a little less than ten years later and ten thousand

miles away, though again on a street corner. The band still retains a dedicated

following in Vietnam.

Veronica May and The To Do List
Veronica May and The To Do List
Driven to dizzying heights by scratch-and-slap award winning acoustic guitarist Veronica May, this lead vocalist and her To Do List create a crossbreed collage of indie, funk and blues. Veronica's flight crew includes mood altering bassist Jeff Johnson and former "Star Search"-ing drummer Simon DasGupta.
Their rich and soulful sounds are influenced by the likes of Ani DiFranco, Jeff Buckley and Pinback. Veronica's innovative mastery of every inch of her guitar's real estate resembles that of indie-fave Kaki King, while her passionate lyrics bear a heart that is familiar with love, loss and '80s sitcoms.
Separately they've played with Anna Troy, SweetTooth and PJ Phillips.
Together with their riffs, licks and percussive eruptions, they amaze everyone from MySpace-ers to Baby Boomers. All this and a beat you can dance to…that is, until it changes.
Their roots reach down into Colorado, San Diego and the UK, but their fanbase is pure Southern California gold. Just say the words "Veronica May" and they will come – if just to see what she does with that little piece of sandpaper. Other mysteries include: Exactly how many hands does she have? When is my jaw going to get up off the ground? and Is that a kazoo in her pocket?
Acquaint yourselves with Veronica May and the To Do List only if you wish to experience originality, energy, clever lyrics, dirty blues and jazzy funk. And perhaps the polka, leg kicks and press-on moustaches.
