Their CD "Polski blues" got an enthusiastic review in March 2000 issue of America's leading blues magazine Blues Revue.
These seasoned musicians form a band up to the highest world standards with nothing to be ashamed of when confronted with their beloved American roots that inspired them to develop their own unique sound.
Though they started as orthodox bluesmen, during their 40 years long career they have created their own style based on accoustic instrumentation and fusion of blues, folk, jazz and singer/songwriter genre.
This mixture together with their musician and showmanship result in true rocking energy spreading onto the audience.
