They utilise a djembe/kick drum to create a unique backbeat rhythm to their sound. They are unlike any other trio you've heard!

The best live act we've seen! Sophie, 40th Birthday Party

This act is the ideal choice if you're looking for a big, exciting and danceable sound in a venue with sound or space limitations, or if you'd like to fill your dancefloor on a small budget.

The band also offer their own in-house laptop DJ service, offering mixed songs and requests between, during and after their band sets, for a nominal fee. This saves on the additional space, hassle and cost of hiring in a separate DJ and PA system.
