Conclusion: This is so Motown meets pop of today... I dig it! I feel like I just stepped out of a time machine and everything is black and white! Definitely a band that puts on a dance party for a concert. According to an interview I saw with Michael and Noelle, they got together very sporadically finding each other through people they knew...and once they started jamming together it was made to be. It's amazing how people like this can find each other in the right place and the right time and make music this fun. Check them out if you like what you hear, it only gets better from there!

  1. I so dig this band. I fell hard for them over the last month, really made me feel like I was listening to some old Mowtown jams or something. Really nice people too.
