Swimming With Bears

There’s no definitive ranking of charismatic people, but if there were, Swimming With Bears’ front man Joe Perry (who also plays bass) would be high on the list. Alongside Alec Conte (lead guitar), Ryan Hannasch (drums), and Jonny Boy Kerr (rhythm guitar), Perry exudes charisma from his very being. The result? Swimming With Bears is one of-–if not the most charming, captivating, charismatic bands in the world right now. The band calls their “sub-genre” Pop N Roll, noting that it’s “a little bit of indie rock, a little bit of pop, and always a damn good time.” Make sure you don't miss them making a splash  this year on The Rock Boat XXI.
