A very talented band from Athens, GA. The main lineup is John "J.B." Bell on Vocals, Guitar, and Mandolin, John "JoJo" Hermann on Keyboards and Vocals, Michael "Mikey" Houser on Guitar and Vocals, Todd Nance on Drums, Domingo "Sunny" Ortiz on Percussion and Vocals, and finally David Schools on Bass and Vocals. They are a great jam band, but unlike some current popular jam bands, they can write songs that can support themselves without jamming. They have released several great albums including "Ain't Life Grand", "Light Fuse, Get Away", and "'Till the Medicine Takes". Even though their albums are great, their main bread and butter is performing live.
