The band specialised in guitar-driven rock and played many gigs at the Hangar and Archipelago clubs.

One particular memory is of an occasion when they set out to play a gig in Karoi in Jules’ truck which was furnished with “typical Zimbo” tyres.  That means that the grooves and so were not quite up to scratch.  As a result, they found themselves stranded at the roadside with all their gear.  This required a rescue mission to be sent from Karoi, incorporating a convoy of pick-up trucks.  As a result they arrived at 9 pm, missing their planned 6 pm soundcheck by some hours.  Passing their gear over the heads of party-goers, they got established and duly rocked the patient audience well into the night.  Playing in front of thousands at the Rhinofest is also a special memory.
