We now have a seven-person ensemble of eighties specialists… including Expo, Gizmo, Velcro and the whole rest of the McFlies extended family.
Instrumentation includes six and twelve-string guitars, accordion, harmonium, harmonica, melodica, ukulele, upright bass, mandolin, penny whistle, percussion. Vocal treatments range from camp to campfire, and from gospel to Gregorian. Arrangements… heavy-metal reggae, country-lounge, bluegrass new wave… I’m not kidding. This band is going to ROCK in every genre.
