mother's choice
Mother's Choice dishes out passionate, original pop that gets the audience moving and the beer flowing.  This new, but experienced rock band out of Portland, OR has been playing together for a year... but the four members have seen many years of playing time on the East Coast and in the Midwest.

George spent his teen years in Chicago modeling fake mustaches and testing the limits of a phony birth certificate while drumming with Tiger Beat has-beens and new wave hopefuls.  He has performed with members of The Buckinghams (KIND OF A DRAG) and The Shadows of  Knight (GLORIA).  On occasion, he could be seen backing up a former member of Elvis Presley's band.

Barber was the lead vocalist in the NJ rock band "To Be Announced" before joining Mother's Choice.  He has been honing his chops to sing nude on Broadway.

Leif, on Bass, hails from Minneapolis. Previously, he played a stint with the Cow Tippers in St. Paul.  His "take no prisoners" style has, at times, been known to set captives free. 

Jeff, guitar & vocals, is the band's main songwriter.  Staying one step ahead of the law from Ohio to Virginia to North Carolina, he settled down in Portland two years ago and assumed the name "Jeff." 

With musical influences ranging from The Replacements to Uncle Tupelo, Mother's Choice is more fun than rubbing steel wool on grandma.
