‘‘We play ev­ery­thing from the ’40s, ’50s, and ’60s rock ‘n’ roll all the way up to the ’90s, ba­si­cally ev­ery­thing rock ‘n’ roll, a bit of the quiet stuff and a bit of the loud stuff,’’ Grub said.

‘‘We have been play­ing to­gether on and off for a good 20 years and that’s what it’s all about - good mates and good mu­sic.

‘‘Just get out and have a good time - that’s what life’s all about.’’
