The four year old group is comprised of veterans of Boz Scaggs, Delbert McClinton, Marcia Ball, Carlene Carter, Maria Muldaur, CA Honeydrops, Asleep At The Wheel, Hal Ketcham, James Cotton, Charlie Musselwhite, Jr Brown, Jimmy Vaughn, Mose Allison, Fabulous Thunderbirds & many more and is being heralded across the globe.

Here's some critical acclaim from the new ElectroFi Cd  from 2016: The band is up for four BMA Awards in May in Memphis in 2017.

Their self-titled debut is a blast from start to finish. Effortlessly melds California and Texas as well as Chicago blues on a set of originals.
— Nick Cristiano - Philadelphia Inquirer 8/25/16

Top notch from start to finish, skip this one at your peril.
— Mark Smith - Music Revue

Though described as a blues ‘supergroup’, this fivesome refreshingly displays none of the showboating or excess such a tag can suggest. Veteran harp master Mark Hummel fronts a lineup which lays down a set of blues as rock solid as each of the individual resumes.
— Duane Verh - Roots Music Report

Great bluesmen from California and Texas, including Mark Hummel and Anson Funderburgh....This is authentically real blues music. Dig It!
— Joe Wolfe - Ear To The Ground

Terrific-this excellent release with more joint contributions and only a few individual blow out solos, making it walk like a sleeping giant.
— Bman's Blues Report
They just might be the best blues band going
— Kent Wolgamott - Lincoln Journal Star

A stunning piece of work from start to finish
— Roger Gatchet - Living Blues

These guys have a sound as big as their combined resumes...
— Kevin Wierbicki - antiMusic

All respected instrumentalists in their own right, this collaboration is a premium showcase of West Coast Blues.These guys are all veteran blues men playing what noted critic Dick Sherman dubs’Real Deal Blues’!
— Jim Hynes - Elmore Magazine

Having so many years under their belts, the band members are thrilled to be in a new project that can get them excited night after night. Feeding off each other’s ideas, they bring something new to the table each show, keeping themselves as well as the audience entertained with the best effort they can put forth.
