Proud winners of the 2007, 2008, and 2010 Capital Area Blues Society's Blues Brawls in Lansing, Michigan. The band represented C.A.B.S. at the 2008 (semi-finalists) and 2009 (top ten finalists) International Blues Challenges on Beale Street in Memphis, Tennessee, and will be doing so again in 2011.

Much-talked-about performances in front of thousands at the Old Town, Kalamazoo, St. Louis, and Mt. Pleasant Blues Festivals, as well as their set in the finals of the 2009 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee prove that this band can handle any gig -- from intimate club dates to large theaters and festivals. Add to that a list of high profile dates opening for such internationally recognized artists as Ana Popovic, Jimmy Thackery, John Nemeth, Larry McCray and Studebaker John, and there's no question why this band's performance calendar remains so full.

Set List

We play a solid mix of original and cover music. We prefer gigs where we can showcase our original material, but we're more than happy to play as much cover music as the crowd wants to hear.
