Profile
One of the longest enduring bands out of Seattle, The Green Pajamas (sometimes bill as just Green Pajamas) from the beginning bucked that scene's love of heavy guitars by producing psychedelic rock rooted in the classics of the 60s, but timeless in quality. Leader and chief writer Jeff Kelly has been the one constant, with his poetic lyrics and tremulous voice.
