Really hard to explain, we are a sweet mix of Alternative/Experimental/Indie/Progressive rock. people often tell us we sound like the RHCP, but we go for our original sound!

What is your most memorable gig so far?
We have had A LOT of good shows but we think that the most memorable gig (so far) was our first time playing at M’s Lips Lounge, we were the first band playing and we had the biggest crowd of the night, we all had fun that day.
