The band have been playing for over three years in their current 3-piece set up, having 'morphed' from an original 5-piece blues band. As a 3-piece they can more easily 'fit' into smaller venues. However, they can call on additional musicians if the occasion calls for it.

My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?
If you ask beforehand and we decide we can do it, we will rehearse it and do it for you. We aim to please!
How many breaks do you take? How long are they?
Usually one 15 minute break between two x one hour sets ( or two x one and a quarter sets) If we're doing a 3 hour gig, it would be two short breaks.
