Maggie, Pierce and EJ

Maggie, Pierce and EJ, three talented multi-instrumentalists and singers defy description because their music defies classification. One minute they're coffee-house folkies, the next they're headbangers, and then they're covering Yoko Ono tunes. The one constant is their unbelievable three-part harmonies. The band changes instruments as easily as they change styles, with all three getting a turn at drums, lead guitar and bass. They were winners of Kweevak online magazine's best album of the year, 2001. Adbusters Magazine has featured their song "Linda's Red Button" for two consecutive years. Called one of the best unsigned bands in America (Sun Sentinel-Miami), MPE were one of ten Finalists out of over 1,500 entrants in the 2006 Mountain Stage NewSong Contest. Their song, 'Flame' was chosen as a winner in the choir contest in The Philadelphia's Songwriter's Project. MPE were featured in the syndicated program "Hipster London" on the Discovery Travel Channel, and 5 of their songs were part of an A&E series in 2005. 'Yipee-i-a', a song from their silver triple album, was in the Discovery's show, "The Deadliest Catch" in 2006. A 17 minute documentary of their two week, gasoline free, walking tour from Philly to D.C. "Whole Steps Toward Peace.-aka: Screw the Van," (where they walked 218 miles in 16 days with their dog, Pokey, instruments on backs and concerts most every night), was chosen as a finalist in the Tribecca Film contest. They will perform a set of original music, followed by a rendition of the entire Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album, complete with costumes! "Hugely eclectic folk-rockers, Maggi, Pierce And E.J. built a strong grassroots following through constant touring since the late '90s. Their 7 self-released CD's range from coffeehouse folk to rootsy rock & roll, country, jazz, pop, and alternative rock. MPE tie its freewheeling music together with smooth three-part harmonies and energetic concert performances in which all three members switch instruments at a dizzying pace." - All Music Guide
