"The Very People play music for us. [...]The family Luoma is rich with talent. Brothers Jesse and Ben, along with sister Rochelle, create impeccable harmonies, augmented by the skilled guitar ministrations of Nathan Mattson and the rhythm and percussion dyad of drummer Sebastian Witherspoon and bassist Ryan Earp." - Duluth, MN


"Great original bands spring up in Duluth all the time, probably more often than we laypeople deserve. But few play music that is danceable. That's where the Very People come in. Their blend of funk and rock is conducive to shaking your groove thang, and their originals mesh seamlessly with classic tail-wagging covers from Stevie Wonder and related legends." - Duluth, MN
