The band performs four major concerts per year, with additional minor concerts (Thornton Winterfest, Twist and Shout Summer Concert Series) spread throughout.

“Music is the one area of human experience which transcends culture and language. It’s like being able to put your hand backwards through the curtain of time and touching somebody that you can’t see.. But you can feel.” -John Kenny
