Bio: The wife and husband duo is a band that started in Michigan, but now has a following all over the country. The War & Treaty cannot be defined in one genre, with Tanya Trotter and Michael Trotter Jr., having been called blues, soul, country, and gospel. After hearing their cover of the Rolling Stones’It’s Only Rock & Roll (But I Like It),” you can go ahead and call them rock too. Seeing them live, you can get pumped up and dancing with one song, and then be brought down for a soft landing with the next.
