The trio [sometimes 4piece] includes the two Scala brothers who are also in Denney & The Jets and one brother who makes a mean fish fry.

Earlier this week they made their debut EP – Stoned Eagle – available for stream and download via their bandcamp – and it’s a solid listen all the way through. You can check it out right here.
