Roots rocker Becky Chace will knock you over with her voice and her longtime sidekick Brian Minisce will help you get back up and stand at attention. Their vast catalog of original music is authentic, eclectic and honest. Becky covers artists as diverse as Irving Berlin, Johnny Cash and Men at Work. As long as the song is great, it doesn’t matter if they wrote it or someone else did 100 years ago, they’ll perform anything that moves them with groove, sensitivity and passion.
