Amber Foxx started her band with her husband and Upright Bass player Bobby Cavener in Southern California back in 2002. They had a steady once a week show at the Doll Hut in Anaheim, CA. Then at Viva Las Vegas 2003, Amber felt fortunate to be included in the Modern Stars Of Rockabilly set with Charlie Thompson, Vicky Tafoya and Big Sandy.
Chris "Sugarballs" Sprague was included on Drums for some of the songs from her 2nd CD "HiFi Party" and Amber and Chris kept running into each other out and about. At a fill in show Amber and Chris started singing harmony together. They realized that harmony like that is a rare thing so Amber asked Chris to be a permanent addition. You can see Chris singing and playing Guitar for "The Outta Sites" and "Chris 'Sugarballs' Sprague & the 18 Wheelers" or drums for "Los Straightjackets" and "Deke Dickerson & the Ecco-Fonics".
Amber was introduced to local guitar whiz Tommy Harkenrider as someone who is versatile enough to handle a set as varied as Amber's. Tommy's talented take on blues and roots music have gained him students from France to Australia. He can also be seen backing up anyone from local blues belters to musical greats.
