Soulful Classics are the staple. Jazzspirational grooves are essential plus upbeat funky numbers to bring the vibe and on the spot improvisation, 'true' stories and acid jazz flights make the cherry on top go POP! Come ready to laugh and dance.

Their successful introduction to Margate during 2013's One Love festival has cemented the town's love of their upbeat soul brand with regular with gigs and party nights scheduled throughout the year at Morgan's Vintage Dance Hall and unexpected 'pop ups' at the iconic Dreamland bandstand and the open air stage at the newly refurbished Folkestone Harbour Arm.
“We really try not to oversell ourselves in each area and will only play one or two venues in each town. We are a group of amateur proffessional musicians and this band is our train set. But don't assume we are not serious about music. This is great train"
