We are the guitar ensemble from hell that your mother warned you about.

Looking at the guitar from a different view, we are an ensemble  of lotsa guitars.

We play instrumental guitar music which can be described as :

interlocking, harmonic, conversational, rhythmic, atmospheric and great fun.

The music is mostly electric, highly eclectic, approchable and all played live.

guaranteed – no extended guitar solos

guaranteed – to take you on journeys guitar music often doesn’t go

guaranteed – lotsa guitars without the annoying parts – not very guitarry [if there’s such a word]

guaranteed – not a LOT of spandex nor boofy hair

guaranteed – egos left at the door [that’s not true actually]

guaranteed – interesting but approachable

guaranteed – stupidly large amounts of fun
