Biography

Being from the Memphis and mid-south region we sound like Elvis and the Beatles who are big influences. Living up (St. Louis) and down (New Orleans) the river or near it (Oxford, MS) we really
sound a little like all of it at times. Heavily inflenced by blues, river music, and jam bands, and old school country. We sound like everybody and yet nobody when you hear it all in the complete context.
We are a couple of guys who have played for years trying to get off the ground and love to play.
