PLAN B is more than a band. It's a group of friends who happen to be highly skilled musicans, have years of experiece playing in every situation possible and perform an infecious eclectic music that is great for dancing and a joy to listen to. Their style might be called Americana. What's that? If you were to throw all American music stylings in a hat and mix them up you would most likely have made Americana. Your hat would be filled with a great mix of rock, blues, R&B, country, cajun and soul. Something for everyone.
