Fronted by 2 young talented female vocalists, Cait Janes & Jessica Monds, The Refranes focus on dance-rock that is guaranteed to get your blood flowin. These lovely ladies are backed by some of the most talented musicians in Cincinnati.

We cover a wide variety of genres including blues, soul, rock, jazz, folk, country, bluegrass, pop, indie, grunge and R&B of the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, 2000s and now. So, whatever you're into, we probably play it and we definitely play it well.
 The band started out as a father/daughter (Dave and Caitlin Janes) acoustic act back in March 2010 at HD Beans. Last year they decided to go dance pop electric and along the way added another young talented vocalist in Jessica Monds, keyboard virtuoso Barry Elliott, veteran drummer Dave "Thumper" McCartt and awesome lead guitarist Andy McKeown. So far, they've been playing to packed houses at every gig and of course hoping the trend continues.
