Front man Ricky said "We're looking forward to playing Burnley Mechanics. It's a venue with a great reputation and we're excited about bringing our music to a new audience".
They play a variety of music styles under the banner of rhythm and blues. Early Jamaican grooves are mixed in with the American to recreate the musical styles that were so much a part of the early Mod culture.
