The name was created by founding members Pete and Colby Knappenberger, it is to honor our Aunt Pearl and Aunt Madelyn. The color Violet is to honor Pete's Grandmother Violet.
Roger Knappenberger is the reason for the band, he is the father of Pete and grandfather of Colby. Pearl and Madelyn were his sisters.
Roger played in a Bluegrass/Country band in the 80's. Madlyn, Pearl and Violet never missed a gig and I am sure if they were still with us they wouldn't miss an MP gig either.
In March of 2020 COVID-19 hit the country hard and people were quarantining, and Pete was laid off from his job and Colby was off from school.
Colby and Pete were bored, so Pete bought a drum box online. Colby had been playing and learning songs all the while, Pete had a lot of catching up to do.
Pete and Colby starting jamming and just kept learning more and more songs as the month’s passed by. In about April/May Rian was added to our MP family.
Roger and Colby had been jamming for years.
In June the band got together and played their first gig at Willow Street Pub.
In November of 2020 Mark joined the band and is a great addition to the band.
