The word is getting out and the reviews are rolling in...
"As the name suggests; bold, savory, greasy and full of fatty substance. its good old-fashioned Rock and Roll, with sides of funk, soul, and blues all sauted in psychedelic jams. Hailing from Fort Collins, these boys know how to serve up a beat fit for any musical palate." - Colorado Music Buzz

"With gritty lyrics, funky and soulful melodies, full-on rock and roll guitar licks and overall musical talent, the band reminds me of a Widespread Panic type - this band does not disappoint, as their soulful southern jams satisfy the same tastes as their greasy namesake" - Mousike Magazine
"A more old-school approach of trying to honor the spirit and emotion of the music" - Vail Daily
