Emma W:

​This Band takes Great pride in their musical precision whether it be vocals, guitar solos, drums, banjo, mandolin, harmonica or fiddle! They are very professional and always put on an excellent show! Very friendly and personable group! They will take all kinds of requests which no other band will do. I recently went to see them at Hidden Valley Animal Adventure and still am so impressed with their talent. Their vocals cannot be matched by any other country band in Western NY, from Luke Combs, Beatles, to Zeppelin! I highly recommend them for any type of event or just a great night out!
