Meagan Lane & Geoff de Mers, founders of 2nd Story Band, perform as a Duo or as a Trio with Afro/Latin Percussion. Their sets can be of any length (though they prefer a fewer number of longer sets) and are tailored to the particular audience and performance situation. 
    The songs are a blend of remakes, 
cover tunes and original compositions in a groove oriented and up-beat, energetic style.

    2nd Story  Band can adapt to any performance situation, from concert to small venue providing high energy groove or ambient, atmospheric "chill out"  music. (Extra Note: The main instrument which Geoff played on The Boy , The Blacksmith & the Brave Scots was a 6 string Electrified Appalachian Mountain Dulcimer; you can see Geoff play these these songs on Bayou  Concert Videos page [also featuring Mister "V" Polish violinist who was 1st chair of the Krakow Radio Orchestra before the "Iron Curtain" fell & the USSR broke up!]
