About World’s Finest
World’s Finest describes itself as “foot stompin’ Americana dance floor Instigators from Portland, Oregon.” With a songwriting style rooted in Americana, the band banks on its ability to transcend genres of all kinds.

The band is Chris Couch (guitar/vocals), Evan Malfer (bass), Dan Hurley (banjo/vocals), Mike Apodaca (drums) and Sean McLean (sax/guitar/vocals).
