We are a Winston-Salem based Blues band. We are a group of professional, experienced musicians who together have more years than we like to admit of performing experience. Our style is a hard, driven, and powerful original and cover blues that mixes Chicago and Texas sounds with a splash of classic rock.

We are currently looking for a bassist. Send us a message if you are interested.
