"While we play a lot of our own material (including some that are a bit satirical) we can also include an eclectic variety of covers. With about 175 years of experience among us we know how to tailor our material to each venue which can also include having our drummer use a djembe and cajon instead of a full kit.
"Our first CD, Sum Of The Parts, with 12 original songs was released in 2007, the second, Live At The Upper Room, came out in 2011, the CD, These Men You've Made, with another 12 original tunes became available in 2013, and we’ve just released our fourth, The Extent Of What We Know, which contains another 14 originals."
