Not many folk bands make it past both diapers and drivers ed, but this trio has outlasted them all by simply crushing it with their incredible, original songwriting, signature 3-part harmonies, other-worldly arrangements, and hilarious stage banter. A trio made up of Sue Demel, Deborah Maris Lader and Bruce Roper, these three kinda mixed-up adults of perfect parentage are just crazy enough to enlist Beethoven as the inspiration for their 10th album. Huffington Post declares: “Their lyrics often have the narrative complexity of Leonard Cohen or the nimble wit of Noël Coward. Mention should also be made of the stream of instruments that flowed through the Sons' inexhaustibly dextrous hands during the night, and also of the gorgeous 3-part harmony that has become their vocal signature. They employ it sparingly, but when Roper's astringent croon, Lader's plangent warble, and Demel's athletic purr twine together like a braid, you can just about keel over from ravishment. Fortunately, it’s is so crowded, there's nowhere to keel over to; the worst that can happen is a sort of semi-collapse onto your neighbor's shoulder. With any luck he's someone you know.”
"Sons have a sound that is so unique that they are in a class by themselves.” New Texas
“Sons were simply magical. It was one of those performances where the energy was so palpable you could feel it in the building when you walked in. I can’t recall seeing an audience so completely engaged and connected to the performance here before. It was an absolute pleasure to have them here.” Steve Abrams -Executive Vice President Harris Theater Millennium Park, Chicago
