Gigs include: Coachella, Riot Fest, Ink and Iron (USA), Isle of Wight Festival (UK) in addition to touring Europe, Scandinavia, America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

“As a frontman you’ll struggle to see any better. Vocals, Guitar and Hammond were absolutely sublime. Unique, expressive, dynamic, thrilling would be a start to the description of the experience but it’s a lot more”
“The Best Band I’ve seen in ages!” – Mickey Gallagher (The Blockheads)
“Greg Coulson is a hyperactive example of the ability of the blues to grab new generations with it’s indefinable magic. Definitely one to watch!” – Classic Rock Presents The Blues
