A 9 piece musical monster that feeds on pure energy, the band has built a strong following around the UK and especially in the Midlands after gigging hard for 3 years. Shows have varied from small DIY festivals, toilet venues and street parties to 1000+ capacity arenas such as Rock City in Nottingham and The Venue in Derby as well as some of UK’s biggest festivals including Boomtown (3 times), Y-Not (twice), Beatherder, Splendour and Equinox.
The band mix a range of genres into a high energy soup with big sing along choruses, screaming guitar solos, blaring brass hooks and wild stage shows.
On forming, the band bonded over a mutual love of Reggae, Ska, Punk and a shared political and social awareness but since have added in influences as diverse as Funk, Soul, Salsa, Jungle, HipHop, Blues and many others.
