I can’t say enough good things about these guys. From the moment I first heard them opening up for The Who last December, I was sold. That’s probably why I’ve photographed them 3 more times over the last 8 months.

They are a refreshing throwback to the 50’s and 60’s blues, rock and soul greats. Musically I think they are rock solid. Each and every member of the band has such a presence on stage. They form together seamlessly to deliver a high intensity performance. This band, especially the lead singer Ty, plays for the crowd. The energy he extends to them is tremendous. And right when you think he’s got them where he wants them, he hops into the crowd and gives them some more. And then he takes it all back on stage with him and throws it right back to them.

These guys are going places fast. Don’t sleep on them. See for yourself.
