Best Pop Band 

The Educated Guess

It's sometimes said that the best pop music comes from the heart, not the head, but the Educated Guess might beg to differ. Led by the eccentric, brilliant Charlie Brumley on piano and vocals, the Educated Guess plays brainy and highly orchestrated pop, soaked in soul and rock & roll, as indebted to the Brill Building and Motown as it is to any chamber-pop orchestra you could name. Sometimes swelling to eight, ten or twelve or more members, the Educated Guess is never overwhelmed by its ambitions, partly because of the band's sense of fun, like when the Guess covers R. Kelly's "Remix to Ignition" and everybody bounces, celebrates and sings along.
