    Musically, the band journeys across the American musical landscape, playing mostly their own material. They play a hybrid of Jump-Blues and Rockabilly with a modern Punk edge, avoiding most of the cliché associated with Rockabilly bands. This is no 1950s dog-n-pony show! When they do cover songs, expect the unexpected. On a given night, you'll hear Tom Waits, Bauhaus, Misfits, Motörhead, Tom Jones, Ramones, and even Kiss. The Strand is BYOB, refreshments are available, doors open at 7PM and show starts at 8:00. Opening the show will be Minglewood Labor Camp.
