What is your most memorable experience at a concert?
We've been lucky over the years having played some great festivals - VLV , The Rave , High , Hotrod Hayride , plus we've appeared at UK mainstream fests - Glastonbury & Isle of Wight - but the best thing has to be a jumping crowd singing your own songs back at you !!

We always have a laugh both at gigs & on the road . Sharing banter & pranks .
Is there anything that you would like to add about yourself or your band?
We've just released our 7th full cd album ( there's been a few vinyl releases too) & shot a great video in the wall of death to promote one of the lead songs - https://youtu.be/8Y7abAnrAeA
Last but not least, what makes this band tick?
We've always wanted to make the music we love current & not a nostalgic trip . We've tried to give something back to the genre & thrive on live gigs to any audience, ensuring they leave with a lasting impression of our brand of Rockin !
