Raised on rock, blues, country, gospel, jazz, and big band, After Hours has forged these styles into something all their own. Their niche is difficult to define - they are the best blues singers around, but don't stop there. They are also unparalleled performers of jazz, pop, rock, and country. They take the best songs from each genre and make them their own. Whether their music is old or new, it is inevitably, surprisingly, 'right.' The expressive blend of their voices, shifting from unvarnished to poignant, makes for an intense rendition of classic songs. It's rollicking keyboards with untamable energy and contagious enthusiasm. They are eclectic and electric. They keep rolling along, doing what they do, uniquely and wonderfully well.
