The Band's high energy show and infectious sense of humor, makes it ideal for audiences of all types. Another of the group's valuable assets is their critically acclaimed original material. Though strongly rooted in traditional bluegrass, the group writes and composes at least fifty percent of their music, and delivers a great performance for old and new fans of acoustic and bluegrass music.

"This wholesome foursome proved it has a full command of its bluegrass influences and a wonderfully weird sense of humor."

"Who would have thought that songs about the Tennessee mountains, rivers in North Carolina and four string-plucking folk could get a bunch of Behtlehemites hee-hawing and whistlin' like they were back home in the hills of Kentucky."
