Room 347

Room 347 is a band that has its roots grounded in playing music for more than just entertainment. Their gritty, blues-influenced sound hits home to a crowd that is pleased to see real people perform real music. They have been playing shows throughout all of Kansas in front of thousands of people and have gained a small following that keeps on growing. Fans are drawn to the band’s rhythmically driven instrumentals that are interlaced with thought provoking lyrics. The name of the band itself is a testament to the subtle element of throwback present in the band’s music. “Room 347” is a reference to an old episode of “Alfred Hitchcock Presents.” That acknowledgement of mid-20th century culture is present in Room 347 music as well.

Sister Sarah Tree

Sister Sarah Tree was formed in 2016 by Will Simmer and Jerod Corbus who met in the gym. Originally starting as an acoustic project, subsequently grew into writing and recording original music. The love of playing music then resulted in a full live band. With new member, drummer and percussionist, Gary Clifton, the band started performing every place they could. Playing a huge variety of cover material ranging from Johnny Cash to Shinedown, with fiery, blues-oriented rock originals, the trio was moving forward and having a blast doing so.

In late 2019, the trio was playing a show in Wichita, and Jennifer Byers was in the audience. She was brought up on stage, and not knowing who she was or her ability, the band quickly discovered she could sing! At that point, they knew they had to add her to the band.
