History
Formed in 2002 at Finger Lakes Community College, the trio played its first trial show at their friends apartment on Main Street. As they began to refine their jams by playing local parties, their sound developed and they soon established a following in the local area. Bringing the sound to Chesapeake Coffee in Victor, the live performance process made a slow but steady movement towards larger venues. Since then, they have had the opportunity to play out of state at venues such as Nectar's in Burlington VT, Maggie's in Plattsburgh, as well as local venues such as Milestones, and the Water Street Music Hall, and Bodhi's Lounge. They are continuing to rehearse and working on completing a debut recording with the new material.
