The show never fails to entertain. The music is a fresh execution of a classic rock n' roll sound. A sensual experience all around, seeing is just as important as hearing the band, due to the glittery and scintillating physical parade offered religiously by frontman, PJ. Valletti

Biography

PJ and The Bear is original music, with a live show that challenges and defines rock n roll. There couldn't be a better town than Austin,Tx for this band to be from. There is a mascot for the band, which is a bear suit from the 80's and has helped the band form it's own idenity. It has passed out flyers, been at happenings and been able to connect the band to the community. At shows theirs been a photo booth, where you could have your picture with the bear. The mascot has been at almost every show, promoting before and after, which has given the band alot of spirit. The band has worked with a costume designer that has worked at the playhouse in Fredsrickburg for 15 years. This has given the singer two one piece body suits to perform in, which gives the show a unique quality of showmanship and theatrics that stands alone. The sound and performance has been influenced by the pioneers of rock n roll, where the frontman is the focus and the band plays to that idea. It has been a long road to get the new record "Underground Extravaganza" ready for SXSW. The title reflects what PJ and The Bear has been fighting for, for over three years, sticking to the streets and staying original. The new record was recorded at Bruce Robinson's studio over four days and produced by John Bush, percussionist in Edie Brickell and The New Bohemians. The record is set for mixing and mastering through the winter and ready for SXSW.
