The Morning After / Bio

The Morning After is a different kind of band. Imagine an eclectic Motown 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 employs a commanding, soulful style reminiscent of the Motown sound of the 60's and 70's. Pattie "Pips" Hopkins adds a rich, soulful voice to balance Rachel's exactly 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. Did you notice there's no mention of a guitar? They get it done without one. All together, 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!
