A third of our tunes are originals, mostly written by Rick Hayes, but a few by other local artists including R.W Haller. Sean Burke plays stand up bass and electric, and R.W. Haller plays mandolin and lead guitar, harmonica, and sings great harmonies.

The songs on the myspace page are a good example of the originals, but we have not had the opportunity to record with the whole band yet, so imagine bass and mando, and lead guitar and such when listening to the tunes.

The rest are classic country, or country rock songs like Johnny Cash, Dylan and the like. We have a great time, and the show is a hell of a lot of fun. Cheers,

Rick Haye
