**Insert cliche statement**
"This band is a force like no other. Creating a party wherever they go. Followed by a ravenous fan base. Every song will leave you singing along and begging for more." Try it, it's fun. You have heard it all before. It's as if a band comes up with it's misleading biography before they even get out on the road and start playing shows. Most band biographies areas trite as dating website profiles and equally filled with empty promises and broken dreams. The issue here is that ThePork Tornadoes fit the mold of all the cliche statements and yet they generally opt out of torturing you with them. (Save the eye rolling, giggling and throwing up in your mouth. You're welcome.) Their live show does the talking for them, as well as their signature taglines "Your Girlfriend's Favorite Band" and "BeardPop." The shroud of mystery surrounding the band, the terribly-poor choice in band name, and the head-scratching, enormous amount of video views (2.4 million views on Youtube) and fans on every social media website (50,000 followers) are enough to bring curious music lovers out to a show to "see what all the fuss is about." That is all it takes. Like a predator luring in it’s prey, once a person walks into a Pork Tornadoes show, they are instantly assaulted by incredible musicianship, dizzying diversity of genres/songs, friendship/comradery/love and an unexplainable urge to drink heavily and sing until your throat can’t take it anymore.Was that cliche enough? Nah, let's keep going. For scientific purposes only. Please don't judge.The Pork Tornadoes are a powerful party band that has played all around the Midwest at the best and biggest bars, venues and festivals. Having played more than 500+ shows in the last 10 years, this band has perfected their live show into an experience you won't find anywhere else. The musical talent is off the charts, rivaled only by their attention to detail on sound quality and gear. The band is led by singer Mason Greve, sometimes referred to as “The Justin Timberlake of the Midwest” and 1 of 100 finalists on a Not-To-Be-Mentioned television singing program in 2014. P utting their own spin on an eclectic mix of songs from Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake and Beyonce, all the way to Kings of Leon, The Killers, Coolio and Third Eye Blind, they are truly one of the most versatile bands around. Regularly setting attendance records and shattering bar sales numbers, this band is a force like no other, creating a party wherever they go for their ravenous fan base, who sings along and begs for more.**Holding back puke**Ok, thankfully that is over with. I will leave you with this. Pretend you didn’t even read up until this point. The Pork Tornadoes and their fans will have fun with or without you. If you don’t go, you won’t know what you are missing and can go on living your normal, boring life. If you do decide to see them in concert, be prepared to have the time of your life for a few hours and then go back to your normal, boring life. However, now you will have a faint twinkle in your eyeand an unexplainable smile. People will ask you, "Why are you so happy?" You will likely respond, "
