The joint's always jumpin' as this seasoned band of veteran professionals gets 'em dancing. From the Santa Cruz Sentinel: "Listening to these guys at Locals’ Night, you’ll feel like you’re in a venue that’s part Detroit Motown nightclub, part New Orleans House party. " - No Jive!

Grammy nominee Cindy Edwards always reaches down, pulls out the best part of a song, and then holds it up in front of her audience as if to say, "This is what I'm talking about!"
