SONS are as good as it gets when it comes to skewing the notion of 3-part harmony within original, whimsical songs that spring from both a folk tradition and some other melodic planet you might never have visited. A trio made up of Sue Demel, Deborah Lader and Bruce Roper, these three kind of mixed-up adults of perfect parentage are just crazy enough to think life in the fast lane comes with a banjo (wait, doesn't it?). For 20 years, Sons has been wowing their fans with their music, humor, and outrageously fun live shows.
“Sons were simply magical. It was one of those performances where the energy was so palpable you could feel it in the building when you walked in. I can’t recall seeing an audience so completely engaged and connected to the performance here before. It was an absolute pleasure to have them here.” - Steve Abrams - Executive Vice President Harris Theater for Music and Dance Millennium Park, Chicago
“Their vocal blend sounds like no other; their original songs have wit & heart; their onstage dynamic is nothing short of manic.” - The Ark
“A pop sound with brains.” - WUMB Boston
