The band are:
Steve McGowan (Vocals, Guitar)
Adrienne Meddock (Vocals, Bass)
Ken Norton (Vocals, Keyboards)
The drummer’s seat featured a revolving cast, including:
The band played hundreds of shows across the Carolinas and Georgia. They released a seven-song Demo cassette and the Fragile/Nothing You Can Do vinyl single.
The band has three distinct songwriters that leads to the music having a ‘mixtape’ feel. The sound of the band fit the song and not vice versa. The Beef are known for playing carefully curated, ever-evolving cover songs drawn from bands as diverse as contemporaries such as Pylon and the Volcano Suns to classics such as Joni Mitchell and The Cyrkle.
