Few people have ever seen a Flower Garden set and claimed it to be not entirely original.
Based out of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania these guys have been playing everywhere between New York and Virginia over the past several years and have certainly built a reputation for never disappointing the crowd. The genres they float between are art rock, progressive rock, world, and funk. Now how can you hear that and expect to have any less than a fantastic time at one of the their shows? Impossible.
