PURPLE K’NIF play Hard Twang and Maximum Surf! Imagine The Ventures with Keith Moon on drums. With an extensive repertoire of original tunes and vintage obscurities, Purple k’niF eschew the standards and ride the wild outside edge of instrumental Surf music.

The Schoemer Formation began when Karen spotted Amy on the Hudson Amtrak platform carrying an Andy Williams album. Karen said, “I have that album, it’s one of my favorites,” and Amy said, “Don’t you just love his ascot?” Before the downstate train had pulled into the station they had laid plans for a band. Karen said, “I know an English guy who plays a mean fuzz bass, and he has his own fuzz box so he won’t have to use one of ours.” Amy said, “That’s so funny, my husband Eric is an English guy who plays the fuzz bass,” and Karen said, “Yeah, that’s better.” Within no time the Schoemer Formation was playing shuffleboard bars and senior centers across the twin county region, wowing and waking unsuspecting patrons with a combination of big riffs and poetic lyrics in the tradition of the Doors, Suicide and Two Lone Swordsmen. Catch the Schoemer Formation before they catch the train!
