What our audience says..... 

There are 3 common reactions we get from the audience at our gigs: #1 - "We haven't danced in years to live music, but you got us going and did we have fun..."  #2 - "The variety you play is amazing - songs we know and love...." #3 - Lead singers - what voices - you all sound so good together no matter what you cover...
