The group formed through the starting of a Thursday night session in The Chestnut Bar in Birr a number of years ago, which is still running to this day. The group brings some different styles from different genres into their selections, including Reggae and HipHop. They have a very unique sound for a small group. The group is well travelled and are always evolving. A lively and exciting set all around.
