They are Garrett Wall, Dave Mooney, Howard Brown and Robbie K. Jones.

The band say they came together in 2011 to make their “unique brand of acoustic music; a veritable 4×4 of voices and instruments identified for their dynamic fusion of styles including folk, Latin, Americana and even some bluegrass”.

And very catchy their music is too.

Their name is said to derive from the maintenance crews working the New York subway system.

They will play from their latest album, Fire On The Rails.

The band have been touring the UK with some major festival appearances and collaborations. This includes playing to a “heaving, rocking Trafalgar Square and surprise on-stage participation of Show of Hands’ Steve Knightley and Seth Lakeman at Shrewsbury Folk Festival”.
