Bratz were a late 1970s/1980s/early 1990s pop band featuring singer Paul Shaffer and guitarist Jack Butler that opened for many major touring acts. the Bacchanal, the Rodeo and the Halcyon.
The 1981 lineup included bassist Lee Knight, along with drummer Paul Nichols (Jo Baker and the Boys, Neon Vanilla), Paul Shaffer (vocals, guitar), Jack Butler (lead guitar), and Keith Loveland (keyboards). After Mike Jacobs became their manager, the group replaced Nichols with Mark Spriggs on drums, and other latterday members included John Lusitana (guitar) and Mike Peters (keyboards). The band split in 1982.
