BAND MEMBERS – Mario Novelli and Jorie Gracen
The PondHawks are an original band from Chicago who are changing the style of pop/rock music. Catchy melodies are exhilaratingly fresh and Beatlesque.The songs are delightfully infectious with playful lyricism that is exuberant and gutsy. The band’s arsenal of music takes the listener on an eclectic journey into Indie Rock spirited by Classic Rock influences that transcend the boundaries of contemporary music. You could say The PondHawks have created a new music genre.
The band has a unique contemporary retro rock sound with signature vocal harmonies reminiscent of The Beatles, ELO and Wings. Their albums have a bit of humor, ear candy, stellar rock ‘n’ roll and outstanding musical finesse.
