    Meagan Lane and Geoff de Mers, founders of Wammy nominated 2nd Story Band grew up in the late '50s , '60s & 70s during one of the most musically rich periods in the evolution of American Pop Music. It was a time when Rock-a-billy, Doo Whop, R & B, Tejano, Calypso, Cowboy Music (C&W), Swing, Rock & Roll, Folk, and Folk Rock could be heard on commercial radio. In fact since 1978, as a result of their ability to incorporate these and many other styles including West African, Latin and Celtic, Meagan and Geoff have developed one of the most interesting and fresh sounds to come out of the Metro Washington, DC area.

    A Jammin' World Beat Blend of Funky Blues and Swing, Pop Rock, Caribbean and Tex-Mex Rhythms with a bit of New Orleans Funkiness thrown in!  "A FIRST RATE 2nd STORY WOMAN... Meagan Lane's voice is a constant surprise - sweet, arch, rough, wanton and worldly in turn,... a treat to experience!"

   Meagan & Geoff  performed 3 shows at First Night Alexandria, Dec. 31, to a standing room only audience! The evening was a great success. Band members of the Vaughn Ambrose (Jazz) Trio with whom 2nd Story Band Duo shared the evening said that they thought the 2 bands' styles complemented each other beautifully! 

    From Catherine Aselford, Executive Director, Northern Virginia Fine Arts Association, we have this unsolicited   email message: 

"Dear Meagan and Geoffrey,

Thank you so much for performing at the Athenaeum 
for First Night Alexandria!
You two have a wonderful sound — I enjoyed hearing you (when I wasn’t running up and down the stairs, heating cider and fetching napkins), as did my husband and son. 
I KNOW the rest of the audience loved you .... 
The applause testified to that!"
