Entertainment. That is Beautiful Mess in a nutshell. Emerging from Orlando, Florida's flourishing music scene, Beautiful Mess by far stands out in a crowd. Go to a Beautiful Mess show and you'll laugh, you'll cry from laughing, and you'll drink large quantities of alcohol. After all of that you'll end up laughing some more. Beautiful Mess is without a doubt one of the most entertaining bands to emerge from Central Florida. Front man Mike LaSage never fails to hold an audience's attention with impromptu adlibbed songs, humorous covers and clever snaps at members of the crowd. Backed by longtime songwriting partner and bassist Butch Calkins who is always willing to play the whipping post. And last but not least drummer extraordinaire Andy Boesenecker wraps up the package that is Beautiful Mess with a show and sound all their own. You never know what to expect, making each show truly unique, the performance is fun for all regardless of your musical preference. As far as their sound, Beautiful Mess strives to write diverse, well-structured songs that are full of catchy hooks, good melodies, intelligent lyrics, and strong harmonies. Their influences include, rock, pop, funk, punk, indie/emo, as well as roots country and hip-hop. These genres inspire a fresh sound that is full of energy and free from repetition. The band's live shows can be compared to those of Barenaked Ladies, Blink 182, and Better Than Ezra.
