Their music include a wide range of influences that vary from Americana, klezmer, gypsy, folk to indie pop and rock. Since their formation, the band has played numerous venues, parties, living rooms, kitchens, roof tops and porches throughout the Midwest and continues to captivate and move audiences to dance with their fiery and leg slapping melodies. PET PEEVE released its first album titled An Attic Abroad in March 2010. For more information on the group's vagabondism visit their wasted space at petpeevemusic.com.
