Because the only GOOD system is a SOUND system!


Greetings, Idrens!

Veteran musicians, including former Archbishops of Blount Street, deliver the skankin'est sound around! If it hits on the twos and fours it's ours and it's yours! We are Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill's CHOICE Ska band.

If you're seeking enlightenment or if you're questioning our street cred, read on. If you just want to know why you should give a rat's ass about us, here it is... We play music. Ska music. Reggae music. Rock music. Pop music. It's ALL pop music or it isn't worth anyone's time.

You listen, you dance and we play. Lather, rinse, repeat. That's all there is to it. If you party with us we promise only those without a pulse will keep still.

Look here and find links to our tour schedule and to our media. If those intrigue you, come back again soon and we'll have more for you.

Attend our shows!

Book the band!

We typically play music venues that are bars. And pubs. Often taverns. Sometimes breweries. You may be sensing a theme here.

Even if you don't run a public house, if you'd like us to come play for you, let's discuss. Please email us at!

Our technical requirements are few. We just need you to provide the PA and sound crew. Download our stageplot for your sound crew.
