Both are lead vocalists, each bringing his broad repertoire,
covering nearly every genre: R&B, C&W, Rock, Jazz, Funk,
...they're all over the road.
All of this is done with great attention to the mix, tone, and
a sort of "acoustic" approach...that features great
playing, feel, and outstanding vocals.
With the addition of bassist J.Kelleher, the arrangements grow,
...It's a great vibe and their fun is infectious.
