The band has since sold out several prominent regional venues, won Best in Maine at the 2014 New England Music Awards, and was an official showcase artist at Folk Alliance International 2015. Come prepared to holler, stomp, and feel the floorboards shake. General admission tickets for the performance is $8 and Under 18 are Free.
