The bands songs reflect the deep-rooted music of 70s soul and funk and are heavily flavored with influences from Stevie Wonder, James Brown and The Meters. "Our ultimate goal is to produce a high energy live show that makes people need to shake their feet on the dance floor" Mike Mulqueen.

Their 2007 CD release, " Get Back Soul" explores the band's true funk and soul roots. This is truly an amazing CD is sure to be one of your favorites.

The band has recently shared co-bills with the likes of; Irvin Mayfield Quintet, Fareed Haque Group, Robert Walter and members of Galactic. "...the "soul-funk-groove" quintet, whose high-energy live shows have been known to get even beer-clutching wallflowers out on the floor cutting a rug..."
