They have come together to create and perform their genre bending Celtic/Rock/Folk fusion.

Expanding the definition of "Celtic" this Tampa Irish Band uses the unconventional pairing of flame throwing, bow hair splitting, rosin clouding fiddle with the wail and crunch of electric guitar and bass. They are fortunate to have two drummers in the band and use this to their advantage to create some brilliant arrangements of traditional tunes and original compositions.
