Songwriting cousins Ryan Cooley Gaujot and Jason Jaros swap madolins, guitars, tunes, lyrical harmonies, ballads, improvisations, and rhythms to create a musical experience to get your feet moving with songs that tell of true life encounters, local history, and tall tales. With Chris Bern (bass) Greg “Shorty” Short (percussion), and Pat Sutton(drums) the WV based Appalachain rooted Americana band draws on a wide range of musical influences from blues, jazz, and reggae, to country, bluegrass, old time, and rock & roll.
