The People UpStairs have quickly become well known across South Florida as THE quality local act with a sound audiences immediately connect with. The People UpStairs combine modern rock-funk with a groovy island touch and Latin rhythm to bridge barriers and broaden appeal. After hundreds of live shows and distributing thousands of demo CD’s, the diversity of their fans has been proven to span all races and ages. Immediate reactions are immensely positive and the fans’ loyalty only increases the more they listen.
The ensemble includes vocals, bass guitar, lead guitar, drum set, and a plethora of auxiliary percussion. Each member has been playing music since at least the 6th grade with many receiving extensive formal training.
The People UpStairs – who draw their name from their practice studio, a loft snugly sitting upstairs above a plumbing company’s shop – are in demand all over Florida for their crowd-pleasing live performances. The band has traveled to Florida State’s Tallahassee, the University of Florida’s Gainesville, and the University of South Florida’s Tampa at the venues’ request (and expense) to have The People UpStairs entertain their college-town audiences. At home in South Florida, The People UpStairs (often fondly referred to as TPUS) have become advertised regulars in several venues with establishments competing to book the band on high-traffic nights.
