The Saskatoon band sounded like Pink Floyd playing roots music with Bruce Cockburn and Wilco with a touch of the Band thrown in to emphasize their laid back ’70s vibe.

They started off slow, featured a lot of laid back keyboards and subtle vocal harmonies with some tasteful guitar solos.

Within a couple of songs they had a cluster of dancers in front of the stage, which had tripled by the middle of the show as they moved into more uptempo material including an older track “All My Money Is Gone” and Sugar Mama,” from their latest CD “The Place I Left Behind.”

 They psychedelic feel of the show was enhanced by a display of colours and patterns flashing on a screen set at the back of the stage.

 There wasn’t much between song banter other than Boldt thanking the audience for coming out and dancing.
The Geomatic Attic put on the show with the Lethbridge College Student’s Association.
