Love that bluesy riff in the intro for the song. Sounds really great live for sure! Build up with the drums and… now we have a funky classic rock/blues track. I’m really sad that it looks like this band is defunct. I am enjoying the vocals and guitar work. Together all the players seem to have a good grasp on what they are trying to accomplish and I would have loved to see them live.
I think they are defunct only because there haven’t been any recent tweets since 2012 and the last album I can find for them on their website is a 2009 release. I liked the song enough I would check out their studio release albums. If you happen to know these guys, can you tell them to let me know what’s up?
