“I really enjoyed your music. So a few comments, your sound is very full for a 3 piece group, Everyone plays their parts well, very much "in the groove", I like the song selections, I like the laid back bass player, Your guitar playing fits perfectly, with the drums and bass. Finally, Ms. Deans vocals put you guys on a whole different level compared to other blues/rock bands. Your vocals match well with hers as well. I wish you much success.”
