Superb harmonies. Top notch musicianship all around. Lead guitarist was stellar and complimented well by Trevor Ware's warm bass styling.  Extra credit for being the first act to bring the dance floor to life.

When do you ever see an earnest beauty queen songwriter? I'm enamored by her chutzpah. Intuitive, empathetic backing band.

Front woman Elise and her ex-husband guitar player Jordan are a post-post-modern Elton and Betty White if they were a pop rock band (or Jordan is a 21st Century Waddy Wachtel to Elise's Stevie Nicks). Good band. Great Songs. Great delivery. Inspired.

At times she seems the leader of a slowed down Strokes, more melodic but with the same choppy bass and driving chords. At other times, she's a siren leading shimmery pop songs. All the while, the dynamic between "ex-husband" Jordan and Elise gives the break-up songs more substance (the love songs, too).

Started especially strong. Elise's songs are sturdy and the band supports them perfectly.
