The group's supercharged music is based on a gypsy two-step rhythm with the gritty aggressiveness of hard rock and punk. Imagine guitar, bass and drums combined with traditional instruments played at breakneck speeds with drum interludes and acoustic forays, just to help you catch your breath. They're like The Clash meets the Gipsy Kings. And it works!

Sylvia England, the founder of the museum, tells her and her ancestors’ story from their time in Africa through the present day. The museum features exhibits and artifacts that chronicle various stages of the African American experience. There are rooms dedicated to Africa and the slave trade, the Underground Railroad, 40 acres and a mule, the Great Migration, and African American culture and present day. This museum aims to allow individuals who have been systematically stifled to have a voice and tell their stories. All who visit are encouraged to sit down and reflect on their own experience and their family. The museum hopes to allow young people to expand upon the limited black history they are typically told to understand better the depth of their roots that have embedded themselves into this country’s deepest recesses.
