But rest assured, you can find all our reviews on our Bash page. And, if you want to do an archeological deep dive, you can find all the videos you want on our YouTube page. The COVID shutdown took its toll on the music business. Many bands and venues closed up shop. Our lead singer, Stacey, who was one of our original members lost her job and moved to Florida. We were lucky enough to get the amazing, world class, Emily MacIntosh, who has opened for legends such as Mavis Staples and Al Green and has even performed live with Huey Lewis. Take a look at our latest video with Emily. That is the current configuration of the band. Read our reviews: Check out our videos:
