Mayer May Not Be

Mayer May Not Be

TUES. JUNE 05

» Princess Park

Mayer May Not Be started off as a band put together for a one-off gig at Brandon University. The band members, who are all current BU music students or alumni, all bring their own tastes and personal styles to the group, creating a unique, cohesive, and exciting energy. Originally a John Mayer cover band (hence the punny name), the group has since expanded their repertoire to include a wide range of pop, funk, blues, R&B, and soul music. Be ready to move, because groove is what Mayer May Not Be does best!
