In retrospect, perhaps the mullet wasn’t the finest hairstyle every invented. I will also concede that parachute pants may not have been quite as cool as we thought. The eighties weren’t all bad though as New Wave turned ever so slowly into post-modern rock and then transformed itself into alternative music. It gave us 24 hour news, sports, music television, and the films of John Hughes including Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Sixteen Candles and of course The Breakfast Club, which made all of us want to live in a small suburb just outside of Chicago.

Fronted by honey voiced Lyndsay Evans, who controls the stage like the Divas of old ( I’m talking Aretha not X-Tina ) and ably backed by Adam Edar on guitar, Jenna Joanis on drums, Brad Schubert on bass, and Roscoe Evans on keyboards, Sexy Ester is no flash in the pan. They’ve already payed a lot of dues slugging it out in the smaller clubs and dives all over the Midwest. The new CD, “Monomania”, is fast becoming a staple of college radio and the venues are getting bigger and bigger – Sexy Ester is certainly going to have folks talking for a while – or at least until mullets come back into style!
