"You know, these are great songs, but every one of these needs a drum solo or people won't dig 'em!"

Dave "No Neck" Merrill

 

 


"One Irishman to another, Kelly, here's to 'ya! Your band is
a world-beater.
Hey, got any grunge-polka?"

Dennis Hogan
Sheet Metal Contractors of IA

 

 

 

 

 


"We cover every generation... all tastes (or lack of it)...
all dance styles.
Civil War era? We got it!"

Tres
"Round Mound 'o Sound"
Rich

 

 


"We have so many songs that we play Stump the Band with the crowd and usually end up winning
15-20 drinks...

"One time we knew so many that we won several large drink orders,
2 cars, a home in Titonka, and a small child...

"No one remembers where we put the kid that night when we
loaded up the van."

 

 

 

 

 


"Ed said to play this new song in a key he sounds good in... I don't think there is one, but I'll keep looking..."
