BandRockPop

Saffron plays originals and covers to get a crowd dancing and having fun. Three-part harmonies, true pop sensibility and new spins on your favorite tunes set it apart from the average bar band.

Biography

Saffron is comprised of Connecticut natives Sun Srinivasan and identical twins Anne and Liz Clampet. They play throughout New England and New York in rock clubs, bars and acoustic venues.

Theirs is music that truly blends pop and rock. With clever lyrics, killer harmonies dynamite hooks, the music is meant to put a smile on your face and leave it there for days.

In addition to their original material, what sets them apart is their spin on some of your favorite covers. How many other bands do you know that do a medley of REO Speedwagon, followed by a ska/power ballad version of Jewel's "Foolish Games?"
