Does it get any any more romantic than Derek Thomas (vox), Sam Plecker (guitar/vox), Trevor Sutton (bass), and Nolan Le Vine (drums) all decked out in their suavest red and black finery and luscious locks spreading their funkified, pop/glam-laced rock n roll love to the sold-out masses on Valentine’s Day? We think not.

Welcome to the Booty Shakers Ball…tour. A most apropos title for their album/tour because there was no lack of rear ends in motion as the Los Angeles-based foursome rolled like pros at the Troubadour for a hometown show that saw the band in a high performance state and their friends and fans loving every moment of it. Of course, their pal Lauren Ruth Ward stopped by for a little monkey business: how could it be otherwise?

Fellow LA locals, the Jacks, offered up the sound of their Brit-flavored rock n roll as support.
