Living by their motto, "Putting the FU in FUN", this hybrid of No Doubt and The B-52's have been all over the country. Performing in the smallest of dungeon-like local dive bars all the way up to big the stages like the Chicago House of Blues and the Van's Warped Tour 3 years and running, The Banana Convention is like a naked circus in your ears.
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 tap, hearts pound, and bodies move, all from the exuberance and intoxication brought upon them by The Banana Convention. It's only a matter of time before they're on to bigger stages and venues, so catch 'em now while they're still "underground"
Leading the pack on vocals is the extremely talented, and equally as beautiful, Shar "The Mighty Afrodytee" 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 Monte Nothelfer shakes the meanest tambourine this side of Davy Jones, while backing up Afrodytee with his unique vocal style. Bassist Sean Drysdale keeps the funky flow while drummer Chris Howard's punk-like beats provide the high octane fuel that rocket the band into the stratosphere. Jake Voisine 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.
