The Misstaken show is original, yet influenced by the Greats, like David Lee Roth, Edward Van Halen, Bon Jovi, Skid Row, Leslie Neilsen, Mel Brooks, Jim Carrey, Sammy Hagar, Jimi Hendrix, Pat Benatar, Heart and Chevy Chase. Linda says, "this is how we feel...we don't fake having a good time and we put our best into each show, trying to make sure each one is a little different and that everyone is having a good time. We want to make smiles any way we can!" Misstaken plays originals and covers in the style of 80's, Southern & Classic Rock with a dash of country, pop & disco just to keep you on your toes. Misstaken's sound is influenced by a 'Pat Benatar meets Van Halen' twist and you would think you were in a front row seat to see a comedy show!!

The name "Misstaken" came about in two funny ways... For one, the lead singer, Linda, is female and every guy and sometimes girl out there wants to know if she is married and if they can take her home. ;) lol. Well, the answer was always "I'm Taken... ha ha that's Miss Taken, to you!" Anyhow, putting the words together =MissTaken... BUT, there were a few other things in mind when choosing that band name... for example, I can't tell you how many times people mistake you for someone else, or some other band, or thought they have seen you somewhere before. So, we always say, "oh, you must be mistaken." After watching how many times we've heard and used the word "mistaken" in a week, we decided it was a catchy name "mistaken" only we added the extra "s" so that it had the female in the band story meaning behind it. ha ha! To this day, everyone still asks Michael, the lead guitarist and Linda's husband, if he is "MR. Taken!"
