Playing the old Pirate's Cove and the Phantasy in its heyday, various incarnations of the group have included Lucky Pierre drummer Dave Zima, Baloney Heads drummer Wally Gunn, and Choir guitarist Randy Klawon on bass. Current bassist George [Hanrahan](ex-Ice Cubes) and keyboard-sax player Rod Mapes (ex-Insanity) have been with the band since 1993."

The Scene's D. X. Ferris writing about Brother George's other band, The Balls of Fire.

The 25th anniversary show at the Beachland was more fun than a real fun thing, and a perfect showcase for the band's brand of swaggering, staggering, rootsy rock and roll.
