Honky-Tonk Rock, Outlaw Country and Electric Bluegrass. Their music comes from workin' hard and livin' harder; these boys sweat for a living and you can hear it. Beard writes mostly from first hand experience; farming, building and riding the rails.
Beard: writin', singin', guitar, dobro
Scot: Lead Guitar, mandolin, vocals
Greg: upright bass, truck drivin'
Beard grew up in the country, working on his uncles farm, working for his Dad laying bricks and choppin' wood on the weekends. As his aunt Vicky always says, "you were ridin' horses before you could walk.". , not to mention the dirt and street bikes. He has worked on three different trains too...living on one of them!
Scot grew up listening to punk and bustin' up his skateboard in the back alley's of Ottawa before coming to Vancouver. A pro chef now, boy can he cook!
Greg grew up on the coast before settling in to an East Van home. Now he's a motorcycle maniac and heavy duty mechanic.

Leave your job and all yer' troubles behind, and come on down to Whisky Wonderland! Get up on the floor and dance, dance with someone, dance with a chair, we don't care. Scream and shout, let it all out, drink it down and have another round. This kind of therapy can't be beat.
