In addition to club shows, the band is available for house concerts, festivals and parties, Their appearances at the London Underground Pub Wake-Up Call in Blacksburg are special occasions for the community at large.

Roanoke Times columnist Tad Dickens describes the band as "the most talented musicians in Blacksburg".
