Patty Pershayla and the Mayhaps
Patty Pershayla and the Mayhaps are featured in the “Experimental and Music Video” blocks during the fest. They’re coming up from Nashville to rock the stage at Elephant Bar.
This special event is sponsored by Goshen Brewing Co and Elephant Bar. Filmmaker and All Access passes grant free admission, otherwise there is a $5 cover charge.
Patty PerShayla is a former small-town pageant queen turned rock ’n’ roll powerhouse. Stomping on corner stages across her home state of Michigan, she established herself as a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, winning the 2019 WYCE Jammie Award for Best Rock/Pop Album for her solo EP, Oracle Bones. In 2019, she converted to rock ’n’ roll and joined forces with guitarist Lucas Powell and drummer Alec Klinefelter to form Patty PerShayla & The Mayhaps. After releasing their blues-infused, riff-driven debut album, Cheap Diction (2021), the group road-tested their live set, playing over a hundred shows across the Midwest and East Coast, then packed the van for a move to Nashville. Despite being a three-piece band, The Mayhaps have developed a larger-than-life sound with soaring guitar solos and compelling vocal moments, featuring a spectacle of a five-foot-two (-and-three-quarters) woman, hooting and strutting across the stage, gracefully wielding a bass guitar almost the size of her wingspan.
