Bio: Always pushing the envelope, Pleasant Drive moves to blur the lines between Funk, Rock, and Jam. The dynamic four piece has built the group from the ground up, always expanding their sound through the influence of the vibrant Midwest music scenes.
“Pleasant Drive gains their influences from different aspects of funk, jam, punk and rock music, creating a sound that is entirely their own, a sound dubbed on their Facebook page as “Punkfunky Jamrock.” The band brings about the same kind of musical diversity that Kalamazoo has become known for over the years. And with a street sign set up on stage bearing the name of the band, there was a real sense of hometown pride in the air during Pleasant Drive’s set on Saturday night... ...something that was evident after they blew the doors off their hinges at Saturday night’s performance. With the crowd singing and dancing along to their unique beat, it is no wonder why Pleasant Drive is a local favorite.”
