We are available for a variety of projects:

- back-up for recording sessions.

- back-up for gigs.

- back-up in our comfortable rehearsal space so you can work out your songs with a backing band.

Our most recent projects have been in Blues, Jazz, Funk, and Folk.

We have a comfortable rehearsal space in a quiet setting that stimulates creativity. The space is complete with many instruments, amps, a P.A. and recording equipment (home-recording quality).

THE LONG FALL - w/ Barrett Anderson, Monster Mike Welch & Ron Levy


Doug MacLeod     /     Jamie 'Black Cat Bone' Hatch

Doug MacLeod    lays down the grooves on one of his many custom drum kits ranging from vintage to modern. Hand drums, Latin percussion, blocks, shakers and bells all work their way in from time to time. If the mood is right you can even catch him on an accordion or vibraphone.

Jamie Hatch,   a reformed guitarist, now focuses on electric bass. Acoustic and fret-less bass wiggle their way in there as well. Jamie contributes with vocals, writing/composition, acoustic and electric guitar as well. When the mood strikes, he loves jumping in peripheral percussion. If you've seen Jamie play since the Autumn of 2014, you will have notices that he now plays his bass vertically.....check it out!
