The Tinsel Fairies debuted at last year’s Homegrown with grinding guitars, electronic beats and singer Benji Lais’ barking vocal incitements. The rest of the year found the band playing benefits to raise money for Animal Rescue Foundation, Citizens for Corporate Accountability and the Aids Resource Center of Wisconsin. Jimbo Conner provides rhythm guitar, Paul Whyte plays lead, while Justin Kervina applies his trademark atmospherics to round out the guitar section. Kelly Roed lands on bass duties, with Heidi Gusts on keyboards and Ryan Kastel playing the drums.
