The band released its latest album, ‘Sand and Soul,’ on June 4, 2021, on Bentley Records.

With its original songs, ‘Angel of Love’ and ‘Wonderful Woman,’ which reached No. 1 on the Surfside Top 20 Beach Music Chart, the band continues to wow crowds wherever they perform.

They have also covered such popular songs as: ‘Soul Man,’ ‘Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag,’ ‘Baby I Need Your Loving,’ and ‘Mustang Sally’.

Critics consider them one of the best live performance bands in the country.

One local resident, who only wanted to be mentioned as Mr. Gerald, said he saw the band live at the beach not too long ago.

“It’s the brass section that gets your toes tapping and your heart racing,” Mr. Gerald said.Tyn The 10-member band, originally from the Gadsden, Alabama, area, formed in 1966.
