Formed in late 2014 around a common love for vintage funk and soul, the band is quickly building a reputation as one of the Bay Area’s must-see live acts. With an eclectic sound drawing heavily from the funk, soul, rock, blues and reggae of the late 1960’s and 1970s, the band’s live shows never fail to feature a healthy mix of original material, instrumentals, and obscure covers.
This up-and-coming funk powerhouse is known to keep its sound fresh by calling on a revolving door of friends and special guests who happen to be some of the finest musicians in the Bay Area.
