FIVE YEAR PLAN   Buy Now    Buy Now  



  Dreaming about leaving the everyday grind behind and heading for the sunny tropical islands?

"Five Year Plan" is a collection of eleven songs about where we’ve been, where we are, and that sunny tropical island where we would all like to end up. Even the CD cover-art displays the Yin & Yang of the rush-hour traffic to the serene tropical sunset. The release of this fourth CD in early of 2012 coincides with the official 10-year anniversary of the band. The first saxophone note of the Ska-flavored "Five Year Plan" kicks the disc off in high gear.  The raucousness of the title track is contrasted with the quiet beauty of songs like "Everything Changes", "Best Foot Forward" and "Only In My Mind".  The album transitions seamlessly from Ska to sea shanties, country to New Orleans Junker piano tunes, and even straight-ahead rock and roll.  Amy Lee and Doyle Grisham from Jimmy Buffett’s “Coral Reefer Band” again make many appearances, and Jason Roseman introduces the steel pan to the band on “Sail On”.   

They say that to get anywhere in life, you have to have a  Five Year Plan

Percussionist Brandon Marger continues to create smoking groove lines underneath it all. These songs are a collection of real-life happenings, stories that everyone can relate to. From the title track, "Tequila Inspiration", about doing crazy things under the influence of said alcoholic beverage, to the comical " Cabana Cowboy", a tale about a lost soul who finds his place in life renting out beach chairs and chasing tourist girls from a fake Tiki-hut on a beach in Key West.  "El Camino Real" closes the CD with a look a Steve's favorite spot to go and think. Its the name of a highway that runs along the mountains of the California coastline, and is spotted with old missions and grand views of the Pacific Ocean below.
