High energy, audience interactive Funk Band with a mixture of Soul-Pop-Dance Rock Funk. Strongly influenced by Roger & Zapp, Prince, The Time, Parliment-Funkadelic, Earth Wind & Fire, George Duke, Graham Central Station, Mother Finest and others just to name a few. If you are looking for the new Hip Hop stuff, we are the wrong band even though we do play some of the "Old School" Hip Hop from the 90s. We also have a female vocalist available if needed. Our strongest draw is our Roger Troutman influence with the talkbox.
