We are a talented group of musicians who pride ourselves on providing high quality sound and entertainment for a wide range of ages and musical tastes. Our diverse song list covers 50 years of popular music and spans many genres, including:

We are serious about sound quality. We have an edge that most local bands can’t offer – professional sound and equipment. Our pro sound technician, John Loubser, accompanies us to all gigs. John has worked with big names like Doug and the Slugs.
