Members of the band teach private piano, guitar, and voice lessons to over 50 youngsters in the area.
“People People” (JMB Records) the 10 song full length album released on July 23rd, 2010 was co-engineered by John Baccigaluppi (Editor of Tape OP Magazine) “Forward” may be the highlight of the ten track record, a catchy indie rock number that is in a class of its own on this album. The instrumentation here and throughout the record is extremely impressive, as each band member know their own roles. This makes for a wonderful chemistry that is audible even in a studio recording.”
