With this unit, we know where its at, Myself Pauric James and Sean have a force that doesn't appear out of nowhere, Its like an ageing process that takes time to mature, We sometimes Rock and we sometimes Roll, but thats the magic at all the live shows, With James's punchy bottom lines and Sean's groovy swing, Pauric has the freedom to Boogie woogie and lay down his melodies, giving Johnny the scope for improvisation, To jam it out...and it also gives the audience the power to express themselves. That's the ultimate connection, that's what its all about.
