Biography

Tricky and the Andrews live in an abandoned Axe Factory town called Collinsville (Canton) in rural CT. All three members of the band work and run a music store weekly, practice, gig, and record religiously at night. They first met playing jazz and covers, but soon created their unique original sound.

Patrick Allers (guitar/vocals) has an intriguing voice, mesmerizing and smooth yet gritty and soulful. . Andrew Decker (bass) is influenced by Victor Wooten/Stanley Clarke/Jaco Pastorious and can lay down the funky fast slap grooves at the same time keep a solid low end and rhythm while harmonizing with Allers on vocals. Magennis (drums) a classically trained drummer can play anything from jazz standards/funk/hip hop/rock and electronic. His influences range from Billy Martin/Phish/ to modern Drum n Bass.
Each musician is skilled on several instruments which helps with the song writing process.

They all share a major love for the Beatles and are influenced on a daily basis by all genres of music during their work hours while teaching at the music store.
