Dedication prevails. The band has put out a first-class collaboration of music on their debut CD - Trickbag - a flawless effort and a quality product.

Reach Out, Hard to be Cruel, Black Rain, Mooselegs' Boogie and Ain't Nobody are a few of the songs that feature Donna Panchezak's explosive and liberating vocals. Trickbag's artistic, lyrical and technical skills are evident and impressive.
