SIKESTON -- Kimberly Perry of The Band Perry said if the band isn't sweating while performing, then it's not earning its paycheck. Maybe that is why they were chosen as Wednesday's opening performance for the Sikeston Jaycee Bootheel Rodeo.
Craig Templeton, the entertainment chairman for the Rodeo, described the choice as a "no-brainer. Their talent level is top notch."
The band consists of three siblings: Kimberly Perry, who is the lead vocalist and plays guitar and piano; Reid Perry, who plays bass guitar and does background vocals; and Neil Perry, who plays the mandolin, drums and accordion, while also performing background vocals.
