B i o g r a p h y

Building on the classic Tulsa Sound, the band expands their groove-based genre to include most styles of American music, including rock, funk, country and blues. Totally Tulsa.
Since their debut release, the band has toured relentlessly around the Midwest, Rocky Mountain, and Southwest regions, gaining a loyal following along the way. Showcasing a highly-skilled, tight band with Benjaman’s signature guitar licks being the focal point and driving force, their live show is not to be missed. A festival favorite, they’ve also played/toured with everyone from Jason Isbell, Lucero, Sonny Landreth, Heartless Bastards, Ian Moore, Lucinda Williams, Buffalo Killers, Junior Brown, Jonathan Tyler & The Northern Lights, The Steepwater Band, Greyhounds, Cornmeal, Split Lip Rayfield, and Todd Clouser’s A Love Electric.
Highly recommended for fans of: J.J. Cale, Warren Haynes, Leon Russell, and Wilco.
