ACCOLADES FOR 87: “Congrats to the winning band: 87! Cool original sounds, well-rehearsed and a big reaction from the crowd!” - Jamemi Fortier, Music City SF THE JUDGES: Keyatte Shade, founder of Soulhouse. www.keyslistsf.com Jeff Wolfe, Director of Marketing at Collide music festival.

“Our featured performer this week is a duo that has wowed us with their creativity and talent these past few months, PATRICK & HANAKO. (OF THE BAND 87) Seriously, this will be a fun set, expect the unexpected!” - Brendan Getzell, Hotel Utah Saloon

“You guys sound great live!” - Miranda Morris, KUSF Radio - San Francisco, CA 

We landed in San Francisco from different places. Patrick was born in Atlanta and has spent much time in Athens, Georgia and Seattle. He has always been into unique Indie Rock. Hanako is from Yamanashi, Japan and has spent a lot of time singing and playing Jazz in Tokyo. Nate hales from the tiny Wisconsin town of Black River Falls where he was influenced by Classic Rock. He moved to SF with his band from Madison. We think this odd mix of backgrounds and our willingness to experiment leads to songs that are different, interesting and weird.

This book is inspiring and gives insight into the mentality of many great people who contributed to society, helped others in times of need and become more self-aware. Alla talked about her time as a engineer being changed from constructing buildings to bridges with no guidance given to her.

Rising from a small village in Italy, they have methodically made their way from obscurity to Austin, the heart of the indie music scene, performing 2 showcases at SXSW 2013. Their powerful alliance and headstrong vision has resulted in rapid success and the positive flow of their career indicates a confident band gaining serious momentum. Back in 2006, the Piqued Jacks were anything but serious. They causally acquired the band name after someone drops a bass during rehearsal. The damaged jack resembled an erect penis and the boys felt the sexual allusion suited their sound. A few years later, something clicked, a unified connection to the music making process, and from 2010 to 2011 they released two EP’s, conquering Italian airw…
