Here are what critics are saying about the band...
"…like Dire Straits when they were at their best: in the Brothers in Arms era."
"…it was easy to forget we weren’t watching the original Dire Straits in its early 1980′s prime."
Former Dire Straits member Alan Clark, "We’ve been inundated with letters of support from Dire Straits’ fans, and what has become apparent to us over the past two years is how much this music means to so many people, how much they’ve missed hearing it performed live with the skill, passion and energy they experienced back in the days of Dire Straits."
Well, the wait is over...

Alone onstage with acoustic guitar in hand, Farren captures an audience with his unique delivery, insightful lyrics, memorable songs, soaring vocals, and subtle yet innovative guitar style. It wasn't always quite so subtle, as Charlie formed this original self-taught style with a history of successful rock bands through the 80s, including The Joe Perry Project and Farrenheit.
