Midnight Butterfly

Midnight Butterfly is an all-girl rock band from Round Rock and Austin, TX. The girls came together in 2014 through their mutual love of music and sharing it with others. From performing rock classics, to writing and performing original songs, Midnight Butterfly inspires others, especially young girls, to pick up an instrument and rock out!
