The music touches on a wide range of compositional influences from the mind of the leader Neil Brathwaite. The history of this group dates to their many years playing together as the regular Monday night house band for a soul food/Caribbean restaurant in downtown Toronto called Harlem Underground. Unfortunately, in 2019 the restaurant closed its doors but the vibes that echoed through those walls every Monday night are still alive and captured on “Bee Thankful”.
