By Jenna Croyle


As everyone who lives, works or visits the great City of Erie for any reason what so ever absolutely knows, the weather may not always be what we might hope it would be.

Though the sun may not shine as much as we might like, the rain may fall just a bit more often than we would prefer, and the snow may come a smidgen too soon and stay a tad too long, one thing is for certain, the forecast is always bright and shiny for this week’s featured band, Good Weather for Ducks.

This incredible four-piece band is a very high energy, excitement driven group of musicians that engulf their audiences in not only the music, but the moment as well. With powerful vocals, dynamic guitars, distinctive bass lines, driving drumbeats, and most importantly creating a feel and mood that is indescribably fresh and exhilarating, Good Weather for Ducks unleashes that Seattle musical spirit long thought gone.
