Since we are Honest Reviews Corner, what is your honest review of The Summer Set?
“To be completely honest, none of us really listen to the summer set so we’re not quite sure what they sound like or where they are in music. Although we have heard their cover on Punk goes Classic Rock and that was pretty rockin!”
