    Drummer, Stephen Puckett is a regular face on Broadway and is one of Nashville’s most in-demand session drummers. Stephen has toured with pop, rock and country artists and is extremely versatile in any genre. Puckett spends his days not on the road recording tracks for Capitol CMG.

Ms. Hammans writes, produces, and tours her own shows, “Women of Woodstock” and “Back to the Garden,” featuring the music of Janis Joplin, Carole King, Joan Baez, Linda Ronstadt, (just to name a few) in venues across NYC and LA.

    Bottom line, when you hire us, you get 12 PROFESSIONALS who are FOCUSED on YOU and YOUR night who are DEDICATED to making it a success.

    At the end of the day, you could pick any band in town and they will do a fabulous job. In fact, somehow or another, we have probably played with each of them in the past. After 22 years in the music business, we have learned one thing- If it's not worth doing right, it's not worth doing. Formal to casual, oldies to jazz, "top 40" pop to country...doesn't matter. We do it all, and we strive to do it correctly. No smoke and mirrors here! 

    You will NOT regret trusting us with the most important party of your day...your year...your life. That is our promise to you... 

    With that, we wholeheartedly thank you for considering us and look forward to partying with you soon!
