These three college bandmates found that neither time nor regular careers could diminish the joy of music they played together forty years ago.
On a lark, at a spring reunion, they stayed up all night recording cover songs from the golden era of crossover soul and the British invasion.
OverTime, their 2006 debut CD, has gone plastic to sell dozens of copies. The Shady Lane Studio, disguised as a spare room in Wendell, North Carolina, already is renowned for harmonic joy. We are truly Off Our Rocker. Everyone is stunned by the sound! It’s better than aspirin or chocolate.
Now the dream continues. Here is The Blue Album, your share of pure wannaBeatles zest and devotion.
