Over the next decade, they performed over 70 concerts in the south of England, raising over £50,000 for churches and charities with positive reviews and mentions in various local and national media. Nowadays they play a couple of concerts a year … and in October they will be visiting Telford (the home of guitarist Tim Storey). A mixture of sit’n’listen and up’n’boogie, their sets are a collection of favourites from the 50s to the 90s (which often matches their audience).
