A few years ago, someone heard Kirsten Plambeck singing. It was a jaw dropping experience and it was obvious that something bigger and better was to become of her. With her voice and talent, the idea of a Janis Joplin/Melissa Etheridge tribute band started to take form. Within a few weeks, we had the band! RJ Rizzo, Ora Zutler, Greg White and Kriss Heintz jumped on board. It was a great opportunity too good to pass up! PEARL RIDGE was born!
