"Taking the road less traveled, they discover and share off-the-beaten songs and instrumentals and fuse them into their own original works. They dare to be risk-takers on stage, digging deep into the vaults of blues/jazz antiquity. The result is an effortless take no-prisoners-approach that wittingly captures the audience's hearts."

Among their favorite venues, they play at Ryles Jazz Club in Cambridge MA, Boston's House of Blues Foundation Room, The Bull Run in Shirley, the Grog in Newburyport, Theodore's in Springfield, Smoken' Joe's in Brighton (now sadly closed), Chianti's in Beverley, Minglewood in Gloucester, Salvatore's in Medford, the Gardner Ale House, Tres Gatos in Jamaica Plain, Gilrein's in Worcester, the Back Page in Lowell, the British Beer Company (various), John Harvard's Brewery in Cambridge, the Burren in Somerville, Jake's Dixie Roadhouse in Waltham,The Back Page in Lowell, private and corporate bookings, and many other venues.
