The Northland's 'Fractals' are the region's best Surf & Hot Rod show band. Specializing in guitar classics of the 50's and early 60's, The Fractals offer a much more exciting show than an 'Oldies' review. The dual vocals and surf-guitar attack thrill young and old with tributes to; The Trashmen, The Titans, The Fendermen, and other Mid-west legends. The Fractals 'down-shift' easily to Roy Orbison, Buddy Holly, and Johnny Cash for older fans, but keep the energy and dynamics up for everyone. The presentation is always top-notch with matching shirts, amps, and fun rapport with the audience. In venues big and small, The Northland's 'Fractals' are an exciting musical experience!
