The Eager Beavers

The all-girl  Eugene based band, The Eager Beavers, (not to be confused with the band of the same name out of the Netherlands) ventured out in front of audiences in February of 2011 with one mission: to put together a show that adult audiences could relate to; even if it made them uncomfortable. Their song such as “Can I Pay You to Leave” based on a Charlie Sheen quote referring to hookers, pokes fun and makes light of adult subject matter all in a ragtime tempo and style.
These four ladies have already decided it’s their goal to make good music, make people laugh and to ’cause at least a few jaws to drop’ with their crude and catchy lyrics and daring subject matter.”
