We are putting the final touches on our show to bring to the great people of Baltimore. It’s been three years since we’ve visited our “Second Home” and can’t wait to see our wonderful friends and family there.

We’re going to be performing some of the new music from our most recent release “INSPIRE” which continues to air on The Weather Channel as well as some of our earlier songs and favorite covers. Also from time to time some of our funkiest musical friends from Baltimore & abroad may pick up an instrument and jam with us!

The Dates Are Below – SO Come Out if You Are Able and Tell & Bring A Friend. We’re looking forward to seeing you!

Special Thanks to Roger Harris, Robert Smoot, Carol Boswell, Chris Rhodes, Trish Hennesey & Wanda Best for helping make this happen!
