They have also appeared at several festivals including the Manly Jazz Festival, Newcastle Jazz Festival and The Entrance Winter Blues & Jazz Festival.

They have performed live for The Gypsy Hot Club program hosted by Justine D’odd on Eastside Radio and in 2019 Fine Music will broadcast a live set on The Australian Jazz Scene program recorded at Johnston Street Jazz by Peter Nelson.
