Our jammin' and improvisational World Beat Blend of  funky Blues  & Swing,  Caribbean and Jazzy musical stylings ... we call our music World Beat Blues...  appeals to a broad range of audiences.

   2nd Story Band  performs generally as a Duo (or as a trio with an Afro/Latin percussionist).  Meagan has a smoky, expressive vocal style and Geoff's vocal harmonies and leads are a great complement to the sound.   Meagan  plays a massive acoustic bass guitar providing melodic and propulsive rhythm and  also kalimba (African thumb piano). Geoff plays acoustic rhythm and lead guitar and  fluteslide guitar, harmonica and mandolin and adds guitar synthesizer samples simulating instruments like Caribbean steel drums (pan), Andean flutes and piano adding spice to the flavors in the mix.
