We love to play live, who doesnt. Were recording right now, so be on the lookout, we'll get at you soon.
Weve listened to, dug, and disliked many different styles of music from all over the world. Newer artists like Zap Mama, Wax Poetic, Issa Bagayogo, Sizzla, Jethro Jeramiah Band, Theivery Corporation, Zion-I, Talvin Singh, Suba, Bjork, Bobi Cespedes, Les Nubians and The Roots are definateley inspiring. But we also love classic greatness such as Antonio Carlos Jobim, Billy Holiday, Nina Simone, Taj Mahal, Ella Fitzgerald, Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Pink Floyd, Tower of Power, Roxy Music, Herbie Hancock, Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis, Bob Marley, Steel Pulse, Barrington Levy, Earth Wind and Fire, The Temptations, the Spinners....I could go on and on
Anything I can get my hands on.
