Sound description: Good time, danceable blues funk, or blues with grooves! The most creative description we’ve heard is, “Bonnie Raitt meets K.D. Lang at Brickhouse…” Woven through the blues vein are funk, reggae, jazz, and ballads. We perform originals and favorites, delivering each with a gutsy energy that make you turn your head and listen, or get up and dance!
RIYL: Artists including, or comparable to Bonnie Raitt, Melissa Ethridge, and James Brown.
