The original flavor of a N.Y. honky tonk sound mixed with clever lyrics and versatile playing has helped the band stay involved in many mainstream performing situations as well as specializing in country western themed events. The energetic live show has earned the band numerous awards and the privilege of playing for Country Royalty at Gracie Mansion for the 2005 Country Music Award nominees party.
