We're Inspired by Great Music

Our 6+ piece Toronto-based outfit draws on a variety of influences from the funk of Sly and the Family Stone to the early ska and roots reggae of Bob Marley and the Wailers to the blues-rock of the Rolling Stones and CCR. Our music is inspired by the funk and soul of greats like James Brown and Gil Scott-Heron, and reverberates with the stylistic coolness and pizazz of Elvis Presley, Miles Davis and The Heavy.
