- hook laden tunes with massive guitars and harmonies to die for. Drawing on classic rock and alt country, they pack a massive amount into their sets, sporting three killer guitarists and a powerful rhythm section – think Steve Earle meets Led Zeppelin with a touch of Black Crowes and Robert John and the Wreck.
