The Class Acts are a young Midwestern indie-alternative rock band hailing from the land of the hand. Consisting of brothers Ed and John Ryan and longtime friend Andy McCotter, The Class Acts have developed their musical blend of indie, alternative, blues and punk since their formation in 2009. The band is based in the Kalamazoo - Battle Creek area, but The Class Acts routinely play at venues in Lansing, Pontiac and Grand Rapids as well. Musical influences include Weezer, The Black Keys, and the Strokes. This tightknit group has independently released two diverse EPs to date and continues to work to bring fans danceable music, an invigorating live experience and an all-around good time.
