Fan Comments

This band has been RIPPING IT UP ALL NIGHT! I can’t stop dancing. They play ALL the funk music I LOVE. Earth Wind & Fire, Cameo, George Clinton and P Funk just to name a few. The transition from one song to the next is sooo smooth. I would definitely recommend them. One of the BADDEST bands I heard, in the city. ~ Tracy M.

Great music and kept the crowd dancing. ~ Donita H.

I had my 1st experience last night at Memories and was thoroughly entertained. ~ Renae H.

Good band they bring the funk. ~ Geno S.

What a night! Spectacular! ~ Janice B.

Omg the best! ~ Robin W.

Y’all put on a show! ~ Donita H.
