The BellRays 

We all wish our parents were as cool as the members of The BellRays. Since its debut in the early 1990s, the band has released 13 albums, most recently Funk Punk Rock Soul (Cobra Side 2018), the title of which serves as a guide to the band's genre-leaping sound. Once described as "James Brown being kicked in the balls by The Who," the group pairs frontwoman Lisa Kekaula's in-your-face, soul-infused vocals with Robert Vennum's manic guitar, and its latest album stews up a pot of what could be called not-yet-classic classics. "We are proud of its simplicity and love how the new songs sound like old friends," Kekaula said of the new album. "This release is a collection of songs that illustrates why we do what we do. We are not 20-year-olds and that's okay." That said, Boise 20-year-olds can probably still find something in The BellRays' lineup to get behind—we recommend "Mine All Mine," for starters.
