|Biography: Rock music is a well-established genre.

It is rock the way we want to hear it. One of the reasons we do this music thing now is that we wanted to make some music that we wanted to listen to. Our music reflects our lives as working people who have paid tons of taxes, maintained marriages, done daily battle with “the real world” and lost our youth. So how does one express this view of life from our vantage point, age-wise, in the “rock” genre of music? Listen and find out! We do this rock thing with a bit of passion that younger people haven’t got. They ain’t been through what we’ve been through!|

what you know now.
