“Concocted at the Sound Laboratory that is the Eastman School of Music, The Saplings’ big band mashes up oddball indie songwriting with soul, jazz, funk, and pop. Come for the rousing horn section, stay for the gorgeous vocal harmonies. It’s almost too much raw talent to take in one sitting. With youthful energy and charisma for days, The Saplings are about to become your new favorite band.” - Rochester City Newspaper
