About Us

Our Story


We started out in 1993 by getting together to jam in an old warehouse, then a cabin on top of a mountain, a barn, anywhere we could really. We spent many long nights writing and jamming to produce our first album "Romp!" which was released in 1995 and received critical acclaim. The group's regional hit Franklin County Moonshine found it's way on the radio and the band's association with 96.3fm WROV allowed us to play many great shows and open for many National acts from the mid to late 90's. The group was cemented together through a love of music and a passion for creating. We went on to play some incredible shows together and still are!!!
