The group prides itself in its ability to manoeuvre into different genres of music like pop, Randamp;B and gospel.

The band has taken Kimberley by storm, as they perform at weddings, funerals and mega events, as well as Kimberley business networking sessions.

One of the members is qualified in financial management, economics and music.

Another, Steve Kekana, who shares a name with the famous South African music legend, plays good melodies with his guitar.

The group has also been offering voice training at primary and high schools with the vision of uplifting the community by developing raw talent and empowering communities.

The group also aims to empower the arts industry by sharing their skills in music in the Kimberley community
