Tom Matthews (Guitar, Bass) spent many years playing in New Orleans playing with such musical legends as Russell Batiste, J’ Monque D, Eric Traub, JD Hill, and Walter Wolfman Washington, and in the New Hope, PA area with members of Ween and Parliament Funkadelic’s Bernie Worrell and Kid Funkadelic.

Harry Matthews (Guitar, Bass, Keyboard, Drums, Vocals) has played in countless bands that nobody has ever heard of including, but not limited to; The Swift Brothers, Lester Addis, The Harry Ape, Cherokee Sex Workshop, etc…
