The Morning After is a different kind of band. Imagine an eclectic sound, fueled by bluegrass, dripping with soul with just a touch of latin and jazz and you'll get the idea. Lead vocalist, Rachel Koontz left the band at the end of 2014 to pursue other endeavors, and now the lead singing is split equally between Pattie "Pips" Hopkins, who adds a rich, soulful voice and her soaring violin and fiddle abilities are the icing on the cake. The backline of Lindsey Tims on bass and Mike Rosado on drums evokes passion and soul, driving the band like Detroit steel. The Morning After is rounded out by virtuoso banjo and mandolin players Hank Smith and Shawn Chase who add intertwining melodies like a rich, musical conversation. Lindsey and Shawn both fill out vocal duties as well, adding a gritty, male harmony to Pattie's strong sound. Did you notice there's no mention of a guitar? They get it done without one. All together, Raleigh, North Carolina's The Morning After will entertain you with a high energy, eclectic mix of soul, rock, jazz, Latin and bluegrass that makes the audience insane for more!
