The band members from West Michigan are familiar faces from 24 Hour News 8’s Brett Thomas and Steve Kelso. They make up the group alongside Jim Charbauski, Matt Proch, and Colin Fisher.
The Group begun as a group of friends who played music in the basement on Sunday afternoons, dubbed as “Sunday Afternoon Music Club.” Eventually, the Band started writing original music and did gigs in West Michigan.
Their music has a soulful sound with a hint of Western touch to it, a sound that different generations can relate to, breaking barriers through a new sound, even Millennials will like.
In 2015 the Band won ArtPrize Music Best Original Rock Song for the song "Rock Bottom."
