Local Band in Focus 

Sexy Pig Divas

Meet the Band: Nick Gregg (guitar, vocals, drums) and Katie Mikita (piano, vocals, drums)

Newlyweds: The Kent couple formed Sexy Pig Divas after the previous band they were both playing in broke up. After an "intimate relationship with [their] music and each other," Gregg and Mikita recently tied the knot.

Big Sound, Little Band: "We pull it off by having one of us play a melodic instrument while the other backs with drums," Gregg says of the two-person setup. "We basically become a new band upon switching places, sometimes in the middle of a song."

Are You Experienced? Gregg and Mikita like to connect with their fans on an emotional level, making each show its own musical journey. "We present the audience with an experience," says Gregg.

Why You Should Hear Them: The group's diverse sound — Regina Spektor-like pop on some songs, shoegaze-style rock with Dave Grohl-ish howls on others — makes for wide appeal. They're surprisingly expansive for a low-fi indie duo.
