We're influenced a lot by bands who did songs that we all remember that most bands don't do but people love. We love groove bands, 80s new wave as well and so much more. 70s disco always gets the crowd going. Donna summer and Gloria Gaynor are very popular. Sly, Wild Cherry, etc.

We call our band fans the "SubContractors". They are what we are all about. We also have hoola dancing at every gig. It's a crazy new fad that we developed with weighted hoolas that people have come to love. We call them our hoolaganz! It's so much fun and good for ya too.
