With their latest ARV Records release, “Live at Hot Licks” produced by Mike Blommer and Steve Grams , they’re set to hit the road and spread the word with the fire and intensity that their live shows are renowned for worldwide.
In the Seventeen years since the band was formed they have won many local and regional awards including first place in the 1997 and 2002 Arizona Blues Shootout.
