Currently working on their second studio album, the band is known for energetic live shows and ability to connect with the audience.

The band is the winner of the Wisconsin Area Music Industry Award for 2014 Soul/R&B Band of the Year and the Madison Area Music Award for 2015 Pop/R&B Album of the Year (Middle of the In Between), 2013 Blues Album of the Year (People Brothers Live) & Blues Song of the Year (Looky Here Mister).

The PBB have hosted their own grass-roots, live music & camping festival, People Fest, every year since their first summer together in 2009.
