The Pork Tornadoes
The Pork Tornadoes are a powerful party band that has played all around the Midwest at the best and biggest bars, venues, and festivals. Their live show does the talking for them, as well as their signature taglines “Your Girlfriend’s Favorite Band” and “BeardPop”. The shroud of mystery surrounding the band, the terribly- poor choice in the band name, and the head-scratching, enormous amount of video views.
Having played more than 600+ shows in the last 12 years, this band has perfected their live show into an experience you won’t find anywhere else.
The band is led by singer Mason Greve, who is arguably one of the best vocalists in the State of Iowa and was one of 100 finalists on NBC’s The Voice in 2014. Putting their own spin on an eclectic mix of songs from Justin Timberlake, Beyonce, Katy Perry, and Taylor Swift to Lizzo, The Killers, Coolio, and Phil Collins, The Pork Tornadoes are truly one of the most versatile bands around.
The Pork Tornadoes' debut EP peaked on the Apple iTunes Pop charts at #20 and was streamed over half a million times in 2020. They recently achieved viral success with the 5th-most viewed cover of 'Tennessee Whiskey' on Youtube and an impromptu performance of 'In the Air Tonight' with a drum line that was featured in Rolling Stone.
Regularly setting attendance records and shattering bar sales numbers, this band is a force like no other, creating a party wherever they go for their ravenous fan base, who sings along and begs for more.
Been There Done That
(BTDT to their fans) is the QC’s only all-female rock band. They’ve been turning heads since they formed the band at the ripe old ages of 11-13! Talented beyond their years, and ultra-competitive, Been There Done That has a long list of accomplishments, including the 2018 Winner of Iowa Rock & Roll Music Association’s Youth Rocks Contest, Winner of 2016 & 2019 QCRA Battle of the Bands, Secured a spot on 97x’s 40th Anniversary album and a spot on I-Rock 93.5’s Local Stage CD, as well as a bonus track. BTDT’s lead singer was a co-winner of 2020’s Voice of the QC contest and the band opened the local iHeart Radio Socailly Distant Festival.
These talented young ladies have collectively found their signature sound with their own brand of power pop/rock and crowd-pleasing covers.
BTDT features Ava on lead vocals & rhythm guitar, Hazel on drums and vocals, Katie on lead guitar, and Izzy on bass and vocals. Been There Done That is not just another pretty face on the music scene, for 6 years they've been turning heads with all generations of music lovers and have an exciting future ahead.
