The band continues to pack venues and infuse festivals with its own brand of Blues & Soul.

Have you been High Falutin' lately? And if the answers no; then why not? Gracie, Geoff, Derek, and Tom found themselves asking these same questions. And with discovery of their lack of falutin-ness (if you will), there was only one thing they could do. Get High Falutin'!!! (you have to say it like "get HIGGHHHH (with you voice getting higher) falutin'!!" Noo, try it again, a little big higher on the "highhh" part... Yeah there you go! Alright. See doesn't it just feel better to say it that way? I know I feel better! We are not your average blues band... oh no. We take this ish to a whole notha level. We say things like "swell" and enjoy a thick moustache. We eat spaghetti with a fork... and a spoon. We play the blues like we are actually upset about something. And faster blues like we were upset, but have triumphed and now want to dance. Join us for an upcoming show, you'll be glad you did!
