The Pork Tornadoes
**Insert cliche statement**
“This band is a force like no other. Creating a party wherever they go. Followed by a ravenous fan base. Every song will leave you singing along and begging for more. The area’s premier party band” You have heard it all before. cMost band biographies are as trite as dating website profiles and equally filled with empty promises and broken dreams. The issue here is that The Pork Tornadoes fit the mold of all the cliche statements but are reluctant to use them.
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 band name, and the head-scratching, enormous amount of video views
(14 million views on all platforms) and fans on every social media website (90,000 followers) are enough to bring curious music lovers out to a show to “see what all the fuss is about.” That is all it takes. Like a predator luring in it’s prey, once a person walks into a Pork Tornadoes show, they are instantly assaulted by incredible musicianship, dizzying diversity of genres/songs and an unexplainable urge to drink heavily and sing until your throat can’t take it anymore.
Was that cliche enough? Nah, let’s keep going. For scientific purposes only. Please don’t judge.
The Pork Tornadoes are a powerful party band that has played all around the Midwest at the best and biggest bars, venues and festivals. 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, whose is arguably one of the best vocalists in the State of Iowa and was one of 100 finalists on a Not-To-Be-Mentioned television singing program 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, they are truly one of the most versatile bands around. Their 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 a 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.
**Holding back puke**
Ok, thankfully that is over with. I will leave you with this. Pretend you didn’t even read up until this point. The Pork Tornadoes and their fans will have fun with or without you. If you don’t go, you won’t know what you are missing and can go on living your normal, boring life. If you do decide to see them in concert, be prepared to have the time of your life for a few hours and then go back to your normal, boring life. However, now you will have a faint twinkle in your eye and an unexplainable smile. People will ask you, “Why are you so happy?” You will likely respond, “Last week, I experienced The Pork Tornadoes, a force like no other…..”
Been There Done That
Been There Done That first embarked on their musical voyage of discovery together as a cohesive Rock Band in 2016. But their origin goes back earlier to when the band members grew up listening to a variety of music genres that played an influential role in shaping their paths as musicians and ultimately led them together. As Been There Done That, they have collectively found their signature sound, and offer something different and unique to their fans by creating and sharing original music they are proud to call their own.
