The Newbees from Cincinnati, Ohio began a their songwriting partnership in May 2004. They developed an immediate connection through their love of harmony, upbeat melodies and shared retro influences. Citybeat's Mike Breen wrote, "The band's pop songs are especially impressive recalling The Beatles and early ELO in the best way possible." The addition of a live string quartet has further textured The Newbees sound and live experience.
The Newbees performed this Thanksgiving Eve show at The Southgate House in Newport, Kentucky. You can see and hear more of the show on their new CD/DVD, The Newbees Live @ The Southgate House.
