The unique musical group Pink Bead has remarkably changed the local music
scene in the western Washington area since their creation in 2009. Hailing from the
economically and cultural diverse city of Tacoma Washington, these young musicians
have cultivated their unique sound of urban hip hop and electro pop to amaze all that
stand before them.

The idea of creating a band such as Pink Bead came to the Washington natives
much like any other performing artist that has come before them; a desire to create
something new and exciting and to have as much fun doing it as possible. In the
beginning it was only for fun, a joke to some. That was until a few of the earliest
recordings of Pink Bead were released such as “Its Macnaughtons Bro!” and “Illgauskus”
the stage was set. The local response to this new and remarkable sound was
catastrophicly positive. The bands Myspace started to receive bundles of adds and
requests, among numerous inquiries of a live performance. This drove the four members
to really take a look at what they had created and hit the studio in early 2010 to record
their first independently released EP “Swagger Town City Council.”

After the very successful release of their album, the Pink Bead boys hit the local
music scene with full force and something to prove. Within the first year of solid
promotion and a very positive local response Pink Bead was playing alongside such
national acts as BrokenCYDE, Jeffree Star, The Millionaires, Blood on the Dancefloor, Andre Nickatina, Mista Fab, Dirt Nasty, Mickey Avalon,
and the It Boys, just to name a few. Notable Seattle venues and club promoters are
biting at the bit to book Pink Bead because of the strong fallowing and the large draw
that the boys have at every show, and the buzz of anticipation is only growing.
For the past two years Pink Bead has reigned in the top 50 artists to be
considered to play on the Ernie Ball stage at the Vans “Warped Tour,” leading over their
competitors in not only votes, but by daily plays as well. Currently Pink Bead is working
very steadily on their highly anticipated mix tape “Simply Swagger Vol. 1.” Staying
extraordinarily positive and working harder than most artist in their genre of music is one
of many things Pink Bead does differently.

Preparing for the road ahead and overcoming obstacles is their daily drive and it seems that these boys have a lot to look forward to. Pink Bead is a quartet featuring the members, Eriq McGahuey aka Squirrly Jones, Shane Plumley aka InShane,
