The 2017 Line-Up & Summer Tour

IMG_7130

The 2017 tour has kicked off with a new & improved band! Last year (2016) we welcomed Drummer Rob Mount and Sax / Rhythm Guitarist Scott Gilman ( Foreigner ). This year we welcome Keyboardist Jeff Jacobs (Billy Joel, Foreigner, Julian Lennon) to the band. Bringing the integrity of the music to an all time high! Not only has the addition of these three key elements help authenticate the sound, their stage presence knocks it out of the park!! You’ll be hard pressed to mistaken us for a “cover band”……

See you all out there this summer!
