The band mates came together to share their unique passion to deliver great fun, energetic, soulful, family friendly music with a common interest in musical styles, genres and gigging expectations. All of our members have played for years in venues and events ranging from festivals, taverns, restaurants, cafes, weddings to Stadiums, and Arenas. Music has been such a strong force for them throughout their life's. They will tell and share stories of how music has been a staple since they where children and although these members have "day time jobs and are doing alright", living life for them with out the ability to play, create and perform music would not be complete.
