Yes we play live, mostly here in Austin, Texas. We play at places like Ruta Maya Coffee House, Gino's Italian Bar & Grill, and The Green Muse Cafe. We will travel if the gig pays well enough. We enjoy playing live, and some of our special moments are the first few gigs we did here in town, where hundreds of people showed up that we had never seen before because they had heard our music on 100.1 FM, Radio Free Austin. They knew all our song titles and lyrics from the radio, even though it was only our first gig. It was extremely moving.

Patterson uses his voice, words, humor, wit, and rhythm to the uttmost.
Jerry uses his voice, lyrics, two legendary keyboards - the ASR-10 sampler and the Korg M1, an Ibanez semi-hollow body electric guitar modeled after the Gibson ES-335 (we actually think it sounds better than the Gibson), a Takamine Jasmine electric nylon string guitar, a Fender stratocaster, a violin, and a flute.
Deborah does vocals, writes lyrics, plays a Fender Stratocaster guitar, a German violin, and she uses a 24-track Soundcraft Spirit mixer which has 6 aux sends for maximum dub effects. She also uses a Roland SDE-1000 delay unit, Ensoniq DP4, and some other trade secret effect units that we are not mentioning here for the sake of preserving our unique sound. Those who are savvy in producing old-school dub music will be able to recognize the equipment...
