The band’s differing musical backgrounds are what contribute to the groove and blues based vibe. Covering everything from James Brown to Otis Rush to The Black Crowes to Prince. 

You can catch the band in and around the NYC Metro area at such venues as: Shrine Music Hall, Silvana, The Delancey, BBs Bar & Grill, Bar Nine, ABC Lounge, Mercury Lounge, Hopewell Valley Winery, and many more!
