Formed in August 1997 from the ashes of festival favourites 'Bluer than Blue', their first triumph was an acclaimed set at the Great British R'n'B Festival 1997 in Colne, and since then they've rapidly risen to the forefront of the British blues scene. Their soul tinged r & b and blues are refreshingly melodic, infectiously rhythmic and stylishly delivered. Support on the 1999 and 2000 Sherman Robertson tours led to work in The U.S.A., Europe and throughout the U.K, including all the major blues festivals. As well as being Chick Willis' band they've also backed John Mayall and Larry Garner, and recently were the backing band for veteran U.S blues legends Earl Gaines and Al Garner on their U.K. and European tour. The show came to The Bullfrog, and was definitely a night to remember! Read a Review on The Portsmouth Blues Site.

Reviewing their new CD "We Accuse The Blues" on his B.B.C. show, Paul Jones found it "Excellent!" whilst "Blueprint" magazine declared it "Absolutely fantastic!" "Blueprint" also declared them the discovery of the Farnham Blues Festival.
