Following their appearance @ Cafe 9 this Wednesday, Yes Please stops by Milford’s Daniel Street the following night for a reggae/punk showcase with fellow New Haven stalwarts the West Rockers. Among the influences listed on the band’s Myspace page are such reggae rock faves as The Toots and The Maytals and Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry as well as The Clash, Beastie Boys and James Brown. Although the reggae influence is fairly evident in most of the band’s material, their sound falls closer to Sublime or more often Operation Ivy, especially the vocals/screams of singer/guitarist Ryland Tunila who at times sounds like a dead ringer for Op. Ivy’s Jesse Michaels. A quick listen to some of the band’s online material proves positive that they function well as either a live or a recording outfit (see above live footage for evidence of the former), always a promising combination. More energetic than groove heavy, although definitely adept at both, Yes Please will definitely leave you wanting more.
