"The Pork Tornadoes are a bit of an enigma to those that haven't seen them live. How is it possible for a local cover band to sell out the Paramount Theatre? How can it be that a local cover band has the attendance record for the McGrath Amphitheater? What about the head-scratching amount of views on their YouTube channel and fans on their social media pages? Oh, and the terribly poor choice of band name? Their incredibly loyal fanbase will tell you that it makes complete sense and until you see a show, you may not understand. Since the band's inception in 2007 in Cedar Falls, The Pork Tornadoes have quietly carved their niche and perfected their craft. "We have always played the same show, whether there are 5 people there or 20,000. It's all about having fun on stage and enhancing the show for our fans," says lead singer Mason Greve, who was 1 of 100 finalists on a not-to-be-mentioned national television singing program in 2014. The band developed their signature sound by taking modern day pop songs and adding their own spin to them, which continued to skyrocket their popularity. However, they have never limited themselves to sticking with one genre. "We play songs that we want to play and it just so happens that we like all different decades and styles of music," bassist Cory Talbot said. That is the beauty and desirability of going to see The Pork Tornadoes. No matter your age or favorite kind of music, this band will be able to play something that makes you happy. While pop and rock music is the band's speciality, their diversity is evident in their recent cover of classic country song, "Tennessee Whiskey." Their video has been viewed 1.2M times.

If you haven't seen these guys yet, make it a point to come to this show. Expect a warm and welcoming crowd of fans looking to have a good time. The setlist will be all over the place but will guarantee that you are singing along and tapping your toes. The sound will be crisp and the light show will be most excellent. If you didn't know any better, you couldn't imagine that this was a local Iowa cover band. This show is the first stop for this band on what is shaping up to be the biggest year yet. With shows already booked across the country and fans from around the world starting to take notice, it is highly recommended that you see this band any chance you get, while you still can."
