''Really weird arrangements that scrape up against the edge of pop music rules like a grizzly bear with an itch.
Combining mad guitar and beautiful vocal dissonance with Jan's untoppable drumming, insightful lyrics,
and kind personalities, they're everything a band should be.''
For much of the '90s the NYC trio Beekeeper made beautiful rock music and played it around the U.S. and Canada.
They were Jan Kotik (drums), Karla Schickele (bass, vocals), and Matthew Schickele (guitar, vocals).
