Proper Restraint

Proper Restraint


Our band name Proper Restraint is very meaningful. Our musical goal is to maximize all of our talents into each and every song without compromising the integrity of the song. We are a rock band pushing the parameters of expected sound, with witty lyrics, and grooving melodies.


We started out as a standard 4-piece. Tragically, we lost our lead player and it forced us to adapt our style. With the addition of the harmonica combined with melodic harmonies, we have set ourselves apart from what everyone else is doing. Far from a cover act, and unique as a fingerprint, Proper Restraint tastefully tackels various genres with a style of our own.


We recorded a CD in March of 2003, (Proper Restraint-Required) released independently January of 2004 (prior to Mike passing). No radio play as of yet. Note: Submissions from "Required" are not the best representation of the band today.

Set List

Our set list consists of catchy originals. Recently we started rehearsing some cover classics such as "She's a Lady";Tom Jones,"Rain"by the Beatles,and "Tangled up in Blue" by Bob Dylan to name a few. We've played 30 min sets and we've played all night. We are most comfortable playing for about an hour.
