Their sound is original — jangly roots-rock romp laced with bluegrass
and countrified leanings.
I agree with the reviewer  who wrote that their bluesy debut album "fairly vibrates on DeLuca’s Dobro steel guitar and throaty wail."

The band’s Myspace page has four songs to stream .
The band has been opening for the likes of Ben Folds and John Mayer. The next area show I could find is
