On the Front Row with Grand Serenade

Loading the player…

"Heber Springs' indie rock band "Grand Serenade" was formed in 2002 by rhythm guitarist Kyle Mays, lead guitarist Jordan Trotter, bassist Trevor Ware and drummer Justin Seymore. These high school classmates refer to college radio favorites Nada Surf, David Bowie, and the Smiths as some of their influences. Grand Serenade is crowned by many Arkansans' as the new local indie kings.
