Lyz Jaakola and family are #theindianheadband. Lyz is the lead singer, and spouse Jackson Ripley plays rhythm guitar. Hunter Jaakola, Dave Ripley and Jeremy Gardner play lead, bass and drums respectively. Christa Drake also performs on vocals and percussion. The family plays music by, about and for Native Americans with a unique twist on each song, such as mashups or remixes of lyrics. Other songs are new and share an indigenous viewpoint on the environment. Some titles include “The Immigrant Song” and “Covfefe.”
