The band combines a classic mix of heavy rock, blues, jazz and roots complimented by the modern flavours of country punk, jazz, alternate rock and reggae funk.

Known for a swampy blues/rock sound, the band's influences include flashes of Tom Waites  flashes of Tom Waits, Jimi Hendrix, Tex Perkins, Jeff Buckley and Muddy Waters with roots extending to Ben Harper. Throw in a slide guitar, raspy vocals, a rocking bluesy bass, massive drum percussion and the result is a spectacular kaleidoscope of musical genres.
