It is not often that a young band like ours is asked to play at a venue like Stagecoach.  We had the most incredible time.  Who would have evern thought we would see our band name in a news article headline like this...




We are the luckiest musicians in the world!! We want to share more videos and pictures about our Stagecoach experience with you soon!!

"Truly, it is something to witness...  Young musicians, so passionate about music and delivering with the expertise of an adult. They make heads turn EVERY time I have seen them play and they do not disappoint.  I have and will book them again and again for new audiences.  They have really built a name for themselves and are in demand!  Love, Love, Love!"

"It was a blast meeting and hanging out with you all last week! Not only is it VERY impressive to hear music that good come out of people so young, it’s also a lot of fun. The song selections were great, the vocals, the drums, the guitar solos, the keys - were all spot on!

On top of that, I kind of got the feeling that I may have been watching a performance that will allow me to say: “I saw them back when they were kids playing in Palm Springs!”

I’ll definitely keep you guys in mind for any future events and wish you the very best going forward. Don’t hesitate to let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Kindly,  Mike"
