BEST COVER BAND: Same Day Delivery Orchestra


Melissa Grady is a Bay area composer and cellist who has played on one of my favorite albums (Rec Center's Tin Year) in addition to appearing on works by Tampa songwriter J.T. Brown, and she recently tasked a 10-piece orchestra with recreating works from locals like Rec Center, Band of Sorrows, Geri X, J.T. Brown, Alexander and the Grapes, Candy Bars and more for a night of covers that (sorry, not sorry) probably blows the Reader’s Pick for this category out of the water. —Ray Roa
