LOUISIANA MEETS JERSEY MEETS SOCAL...

..when Butler, Allen and McDaniel get together. They three met while they were kids chasing rock glory in the heyday of 80s Los Angeles, the epicenter of the music business at the time.

Originally Marvin hails Gansville, a small town in mid-Louisiana that’s spitting distance from the Mississippi Delta. Butler is from New Brunswick, New Jersey, an area known for jazz and funk, and also the hometown of James P. Johnson, founder of the stride piano style. Dray was an Army brat who lived in Maine and Texas before finally landing in San Diego.

Marvin states, “We all used support each other's shows in L.A. and developed friendships beyond music.”

“We would jam a lot of blues, but never thought of putting a blues thing together. We felt you had to be an older guy with more wisdom of life to play it right,” Butler adds.

Well, flash forward 30 years and guess what?...It’s time!

“We all stayed in great shape and can give any whippersnapper a run for his money,” laughs Dray.
