WHY BOOK US?
We are talented & professional. We know how to play and sing and entertain a crowd. We're very easy-going and reliable & we know what clubs expect from us. We put a lot of thought into the songs we choose to cover. We play a wide range of blues & classic rock tunes - some that folks are familiar with & some deep cuts that folks may not know, but are super-catchy. We are mainly a blues band, but no 2 songs sound alike & that's one of the main compliments we get from people.

We have played at the following SF bay area venues: Surf Spot (Pacifica), Devil’s Canyon Brewery (San Carlos), Cheers (Pacifica), Winter’s (Pacifica), The Bistro (Hayward), Backyard Coffee (Redwood City), The Pioneer (Woodside), and several private parties. We make eye-catching, unique flyers for each show (Justin is a graphic designer), which we print and post to social media. We also pay for Facebook advertising to promote shows.

We can tailor the setlist and line-up to suit your venue or occasion - from a 5-pc electric band to a 3-pc. acoustic line-up for more intimite settings.
