Melissa Rodenbeek and Hiram Lucke formed The Harvey Girls in August of
2003. The group, named after the waitresses who served travelers in
the American West from the late 19th to the mid 20th centuries along
the AT&SF railways, combine the melodies of bubblegum pop with
experimentation in sound.

The Harvey Girls are a group that can argue about the merits of a
much-needed editor for David Foster Wallace (or anyone who uses three
damn names for that matter), claim that ABBA is the greatest pop group
of all time without an ironic smirk, and bake you a decent cake for
your birthday. Drop them a line; they'd love to hear from you.
