Spring/Summer '16 

It was a nice change of pace to get away from home for a bit with The Speedbumps and Roger Hoover. I got to see some places I've never seen before and play some great shows for people I've never seen before. However, for the summer I will be home and tearing up Northeast Ohio with lots of friends! Check the schedule and stay up to date. See you around! -Ray

A Hard Shell to Break Release Party 

The time has come for us to celebrate the release of our second record, A Hard Shell to Break. The bulk of this record was tracked live in a big open room, all of us playing together (because we're a band, or something), and there are minimal overdubs after the fact. We are very proud of everyone involved and cannot wait to share it, so join us! Kicking off the night will be one of the greatest artists in Cleveland, Brent Kirby & His Luck, who's new record, Patience Worth, will be out and available. This is about more than just some new music, it's about everybody (that means you) coming together and making something awesome. And rock. It's also about rock.
