Classic Rock Covers, Southern Rock, Blues Rock, Americana, Funk, Soul and ass kicking jams. We have some of the most talented guitar players in the local area in our band, if you're into seeing a "real" show, we bring it.
The fact that I've been running this band for 20 years now is pretty remarkable. It's been an amazing ride.
We recently shared the stage with national touring acts like, Don Felder (The Eagles), Blackberry Smoke, 38 Special, George Thorogood, The Outlaws, Blackfoot, and many more.
It is impossible for me to express enough gratitude to all the places we played and the awesome fans.
Had these guys play a bunch of times over the last few summers, we operate a very busy outside pavilion and want to keep them drinking and eating. They can play anything! Great tunes, nice section of favorites, highly recommend.. great musicianship, absolute pros and just good to work with all around.
Very professional to work with. Solid players, great music, great evening! highly recommend, really a different league of the band than what we've ever had before here.
