Summary: Papaya Tree started almost two years ago and the band has left no venue untouched on their journey. The boys are young, fresh and eager to please you (if you let them, of course.) Due to the bands size, they have had the opportunity to create an electric mix of styles, taking elements from; Rock, Funk, Jazz and Reggae to create their sound. They have formed a brand of music that can place a smile on the face of any listener with a performance that must be caught live. They might have been the opening band, but they play like headliners!!!
