         NEW ALBUM  DEC 9th 2017!

'Their energy really got the crowd going' Dentdale Festival June 2017

'Stunning harmonies' Lancaster Brewery Food and Drink Festival April 2017

'This is a must see band!'
'The band proved that it is still possible to present original material before a pub audience and draw a warm response. The high quality and variety of the songs in both sets and the strong acoustic feel, combined with a strong rhythm section of bass and drums, allowed the audience to respond well to lyrics, melody and beat.'
 'The use of four part harmony produces a uniquely rich and captivating vocal sound not often heard these days when many bands feature only one vocalist.'
'Every number was energetically applauded and much dancing and foot tapping ensued. It was obvious that both band and audience greatly enjoying the performance, with front man Chris, working the crowd in a very professional and humorous manner. The management were so impressed that they instantly booked the band for two further
gigs!'       Fleetwood Fringe Festival 2014
