The Phenomenal Handclap Band played a funky, fun, lively set at the 9:30 Club to kick off their international tour.  Hardly the “eye-popping spectacle that overwhelms the senses”  that their press materials promise, they do have a great stage presence and a better sound.  It also doesn’t hurt that upfront duo Laura Marin and Joan Tick are nice to look at, in addition to having great voices.  For a Sunday night at 10pm, they definitely rocked.
