In Norway they have appeared at Kongsberg Jazzfestival and Moldejazz and internationally at North Sea Jazz Festival, Bangkok Jazz Festival, Rochester Jazz Festival as well as being part of the opening of the annual Rio Carnival in Rio de Janeiro.[2]

Moldejazz presented the band in 2008 as:

... These are young musicians who offer themselves and their talent without significant backpacks and traditions,
where Coltrane and Coldplay are playing hide and seek with each other - and often Genesis and Radiohead lurks in the wings....[3]
