In my interview with Sean, we went over the beginnings of the band,and how the pieces went together together to form the current band.More importantly, was his vision of what the creative force and the direction of the band was.” We try to separate our band from others in that we take from the Allmans the inventive energy that had ,and bring that into our music”

The crowd at Shell Creek enjoyed favorites like Statesboro Blues,and Blue Skies amont others.
