Consisting of six original compositions, the EP demonstrates the band’s love for West Coast Jump and Texas Blues, as well as Traditional Jazz and Surf instrumentals. Along with their catalog of original music, this dynamic trio’s ability to play Jazz and Blues standards, Soul, and high energy Rock and Roll, puts smiles on faces and will always keep the dance floor moving.
