8. So... Big or Small? Crowds that is...
Haha, well we like both. The intimate crowds allow us to interact more closely with the audience and have a "story-telling" session. (Exactly like at Beast Grill)
The large crowds are amazing as well - lots of people singing with, is an incredible experience.

9. Your music is unique, yet difficult to describe. How would you describe it?
Amiel - We play happy, make-you-feel-good music.
Brendan - We do a lot of writing on the road, and draw influence from different experiences in a variety of locations. So our music generally reflects the mood that we are in, and we are almost ALWAYS in a good mood.
Nick - Like folk received a sexy injection of brass...
Sheldon - "Lekker Fun"
