"The Really Cooks Album Release Party at PhilaMOCA 12/3"

The sky is most definitely the limit with these four guys- though they have even rocket shipped through that several times amongst their collage of crazy, genre-abridging tunes. They are well-versed in taking the traditional verse-chorus-bridge song structure and transforming it, turning it upside down and inside out. Expect them to make a sizable splash in the Philly music pond and beyond, sharing their distinctive recipes with steadfast, albeit hungry music-lovers. - Music Under Fire

"The Making of the Album Dr. Lemonade Stand (Jun 06, 2011)"

"The four-piece West-Philly based outfit encompass a Sgt.-Pepper-like feeling in their affinity for frequent change in styles and tempos. The harmonic element of their music calls to mind Queen and the Beach Boys, and their psychedelic sensibility evokes that of The Zombies. Of course, pirates and sea shanties also make their way into this eclectic mix of ‘60s-inspired story-rock. " - Michelle Zipkin - Culturemob 2011


Really Cook First Look - September 2011

Dr. Lemonade Stand - Dec 2011



The Really Cooks are a half-human, half-cartoon band that creates an alternate world filled with eccentric characters to tell their story and play their songs. Like Barney, but for adults.

They mix late period British ’60s pop with a quirky American showtune aesthetic, crafting fun, energetic pop tunes. Their music combines harmonic elements that resemble Queen and the Beach Boys, but they still manage to keep an original psychedelic sensibility.

Their debut album Dr. Lemonade Stand is a enchanting blend of outrageous stories and psychedelic throwback rock, recounting tales of evil villains, beautiful insects, and oceanic adventures. Dr. Lemonade Stand was record at Milkboy Studios and will be released in December 2011.

The Really Cooks is comprised of Josh Band (keyboard/vocals), Pete Band (guitar/vocals), King Alon (bass/vocals) and Dr. Lemonade (drums).
