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.

interlocking, harmonic, conversational, rhythmic, atmospheric and great fun.
The music is mostly electric, highly eclectic, approchable and all played live.
