In 2014 John Drummond, Steve McWilliams, Billy Spencer and Bill Baker - who played together through the years in the Milton High School Band, garage bands and in church music programs - decided to put together a group to play the music of our favorite bands from the 60's, 70's and 80's. We figured that if we loved those old songs so much, there must be a bunch of other folks who would love them too.
After a few rehearsals, it was clear that we were going to need a full horn section to pull off the great tunes by Chicago, The Doobie Brothers and Steely Dan, just to name a few. Fate, or more specifically Bill Baker's wife dragging him kicking and screaming to a church choir workshop, connected us with Gene Belser who turned out to be the awesome trombone player we were looking for. Sax star Rodney Brown and powerhouse female vocalist Ami Russ came aboard in May 2016. In 2017, we added saxophonist Rod Hamilton and trumpet player Chuck Wyatt.
