Get to Know The Imps, a Local All Teen Girl Band

The Imps

In February 2011, Katelynn Corll from Rochester Adams and Liah Miller from Cranbrook formed the original band The Imps. They are an all teen-girl rock band performing original music and cover music. The School of Rock brought them together and determination keeps them going.

My favorite drummers are Taylor Hawkins, Dave Grohl, Tommy Clufetos, John Bonham, and Alex Van Halen.”
