This funky, hard-hitting machine of a trio likes nothing more than setting up a groove and sitting on it!!
Influences which include Jimmy Smith, Grant Green, Grover Washington, Reuben Wilson, Lou Donaldson, Will Hudson, a little Latin and a sprinkle of the Blues, makes each gig a musical feast, or should that be beast!!
