The Rees Family
aka Pelican 212

Aaron Goodvin


The Rees Family aka Pelican 212 is a band of eight brothers and sisters who honed their skills busking on the sidewalks of Nashville, New Orleans, and Pensacola and have perfected their high energy performances on popular television shows like NBC’s America’s Got Talent, Little Big Shots, and The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

The group’s members are eight of Linda and John Rees’ 10 children, ranging in age from 13-year-old Mollie with her soulful vocals, to big-sister and band leader Katie Rees, in her 30’s. The Rees Family perform pop, rock, jazz and soul horn band music. They are all multi-instrumentalists and powerful vocalists, including identical twin trumpet players, a sister who doubles on trombone and bass, and a brother whose athletic dancing and percussion instantly brings the audience in.

With a diverse set list that spans genres and musical generations, The Rees Family presents a polished, family-friendly show that enthralls audiences of all ages.

Look for The Rees Family this fall as they perform on the new Nickelodeon TV competition show, America’s Most Musical Family.
