The band are well known for being unafraid to mix genres and have honed their sound on the live stage that encompasses funk, disco, soul, live electronics and roots.
Since inception 10 years ago, the bands natural trajectory has seen them focus on the addictive rhythmic elements that get audiences moving. By their own definition they are a ‘Party Band’ who do whatever it takes to create an escapist and euphoric experience for their audience.
