Read a recent review of the band by a well known Entertainment Blogger here:

John Nielsen:

John began his music habit by performing a solo act at area clubs.  A short time later, he had put together a playlist of over 80 songs..  His strength is his tight vocals and a fun-loving attitude that always gets the audience involved!  The playlist includes selections from Marshall Tucker, Springsteen, Buffett, Daimond, Cash, Jennings & Nelson.


Caleb Horne:

Our  bassest also provides us with Mandolin and Guitar and vocals too.  Caleb is a multi-instrumentalist and very talented musician.

 Frank Aragona:

A self-taught guitarist/vocalist from the age of 19, Frank grew up in the music-rich areas of Chicago.  He began playing professionally in 1987 and was classically schooled in music composition.  Artists that influence his style include: Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Jimmy Page, & Eddie VanHalen.    Playlists include songs from U2, Journey, Police, Bad Company, a large repertoire of soulful blues and many moreā€¦


John Brummer:

Skilled percussion is what sets the mood, tempo and feel of the music.  It needs to complement, not overpower it.  John is a talented drummer who reads a room and leads the tempo of the band with perfection.
