A little bit of soul. A pinch of pop. A lot of rock. And an overabundance of fun. This is what the self proclaimed "circus rock" band, The Banana Convention, brings to every one of their performances; and it's what has kept their audiences from New York to Detroit to Los Angeles - and many stops in between - entertained and having fun over the last 4+ years.
Sounding like the musical equivalent of No Doubt in a steel cage match with The Presidents of the United States of America, The BC provide a cavalcade of music and fun at every one of their performances. Combining a spectacular blend of driving and dynamic original songs with a melodic potpourri of carefully chosen cover songs, The BC's musical extravagnaza will keep audiences of all ages entertained, dancing, smiling, laughing, and just plain old having a great time.
Feet will tap, hearts will pound, and bodies will move, all from the exuberance and intoxication brought upon them by The Banana Convention
Leading the pack on vocals is the extremely talented, and equally as beautiful, Mighty Afrodytee (Shar Molina). She can belt out her lead vocals with all the power and soul of the greatest singers of any genre. Her vocal range and energy keep the audience engaged and focused on her and on her every sultry move.
Percussionist Oily McBride shakes the meanest tambourine this side of Davy Jones, while backing up Afrodytee with his unique vocal style. Bassist "Groovy" Palm O'Poodertoot keeps the funky flow while drummer Fletch Bohanski's punk-like beats provide the high octane fuel that rocket the band into the stratosphere. Ray Torres on guitar has been banned in several non-smoking establishments because his licks come so fast and furious that his guitar neck has been known to catch flame.
