Stephanie Biello, the Bahama Mama, was born with a hawaiian shirt on. Her “can you imagine” line in her high school yearbook read: “Imagine Steph Biello without a Hawaiian shirt!”. She bought her first steel pan at the age of 17, and taught herself as many tunes as possible. A life long love of the beach and music has lead her on a search to find this amazing band of Painkillers. Formulating the one and only:

With the release of their first single "Tequila" and second " No one Gonna Bring me Down", this band is in motion to make big waves.
