Based in Minneapolis, the band is led by JACK TORREY and PAGE BURKUM on guitar and vocals and also includes MIKE "RAZZ" RUSSELL on fiddle (Jayhawks, Joe Henry), LIZ DRAPER (DitchLilies, Black Blondie) on upright bass, and RANDY BROUGHTEN (Gear Daddies, Trailer Trash) on pedal steel guitar and dobro.
They recently opened for renowned singer-songwriter Robbie Fulks at the Turf Club and last fall opened for Nashville country star Marty Stuart at the Dakota Jazz Club. After placing first in a duet competition at the 2010 Minnesota State Fair, Jack and Page were invited to perform later that night at the grandstand performance of Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion. Other radio appearances include a feature in MPR's Art Hounds program and multiple in-studio performances on KFAI.
