    Not an easy sound to describe...think Jethro Tull crossed with Zappa, add liberal amounts of hallucinogens and spin!

Q: I know it is difficult to find a good drummer, and you can never really replace a friend. Nonetheless, I hope y'all start gigging again. Too much good here to just let it go. Any idea if/when?
A: Thank you for your kind words. Finding someone to fill the vacuum left by Bob Gurske's passing is a difficult process to say the least. Nonetheless, we hope to remedy this in the near future so we can get back to performing live. In the meantime, we will continue writing and recording with guest drummers.
