Also featured is Irelands top Saxophone player Richie Buckley ("something of a genius… a world reputation amongst saxophonists"..Irish Times), who has recorded, and toured, with artists from Van Morrison, to Mary Black.
This 3 piece form the core of the band, and are joined by International Jazz bassist Cormac O Brien, Burlesque star, Lou Van Laake (a.k.a.
