Inca Campers also features Matt Underhill on guitar and Chris Payne on drums. Citing musical influences from artists as diverse as Beck, Lauryn Hill and XTC, the band uses solid songwriting as its vehicle for its music. While a few trademark songs are sure-fire standards at each of its gigs, the Campers are consis- tently churning out enough new material to keep their shows alive and interesting. While Greiner is responsible for penning most of the material, just as she was in Burning Bus, songwriting input is issued from all four members. The Inca Campers have two CDs, Voodoo Kitty and another self-titled release, both of which are available at all of the shows. Listen to Inca Campers on-line at www.mp3.com.
