What do you get when you cross The Beatles, The Kinks, Tears for Fears, Coldplay, Jet, Keane and small samples of Nirvana and Green Day. Pink Floyd? The answer: The Give!!!
The Give is a good old fashioned rock band that has been missing in today's scene for quite a while, with some great music and lyrics written by guitarist, Rick and percussionist, Ryan, a great melodic and inventive drummer (a
nd he sings lead, too)and bassist Mike (aka Paul McMichael), with his extremely McCartney-esque like playing (he's also a well respected Paul McCartney impersonator/look-a-like within the Los Angeles Beatle tribute band scene) you'll think that the songs were all penned by Lennon/McCartney!
The Give is currently endorsed by and proudly plays Hofner Guitars and Pyramid Strings!!!
