As usual the band, powered by the powerful lungs and saxophone of Peter and the Wolves’ Meg Thompson,  transcended multiple genres but mostly focused on a groove laden ’70s R and b sound.


 They had a good sized crowd cheering and dancing to an eclectic set of mostly original sax powered music in a fun, quirky , groovy upbeat set that sounded like a more jazzy B- 52s  mixed with No Doubt and a strong strain of ’70s soul and R and B.


 Cormier laid down the beat on drums while Meg Thompson switched between belting out lyrics, belting out sax solos and even playing guitar on a song or two.


 In addition to a few covers by the likes of No Doubt, they also  played a few brand new songs, which had more Caribbean feel, which made me want to salsa.


They also dipped their toes into psychedelic rock for a few songs for a little more variety.
