Formation

When we met in high school we knew our odd sense of humour would mean a life-long friendship and that no one else would truly understand us. We started singing in our twenties and never stopped. Once we had strong duo act we arranged our band around unique and beautiful talents and here we stand today.

Influences

We have shared bills with Wendy Matthews, lots of famous 90s bands at In the Pines 2013 such as Beaverloop, Turnstyle, The Fergusons.

Career Highlights
