Local funk band Forest & The Evergreens has been turning up on “Bands to Watch” lists all year long, so it came as no surprise that our readers singled them out as their number one favorite group of the year. This relatively new band has only been around since 2012, and features members Park Muntz (guitar/vocals), Mikey Drury (guitar), Andrew Balazs (bass), Terrence Farmer (keyboards/sax) and Mike Twice (drums).

Kat Niu wrote on The Midwest Music Report that the genre of the band is difficult to pinpoint but they see them as “a balance between Otis Redding, Sublime, Ben Harper, and a dash of Louis Armstrong.”
