They have a strong fanbase, support from local press, healthy social media presence, you tube plays, internet radio plays and have had tunes played on BBC Radio 6 Music, BBC Essex Introducing and BBC Suffolk Introducing

They produce and release their own EPs and Albums, all artwork, promo and merchandising is done by the band.

They love to play live, organising their own live music events and feel very strongly about keeping the declining live music scene alive

Lee Scratch Perry -"I like it, I like it I like it"

Ranking Roger (The Beat) - "Excellent live set keep on doing it"

Toots Hibbert - " Great band you got tunes"
