It was drummer Butch Trucks‘ side-project outside of the Allman Brothers Band, that brought together his nephew guitarist Derek Trucks and members of Aquarium Rescue Unit Jimmy Herring, Oteil Burbridge, and Kofi Burbridge together before Derek and Oteil would go on to join Butch and Marc Quiñones in the Allman Brothers Band.The group had a few different variations, with vocalist Edwin McCain starting out with the band before going off and succumbing to his own industry fame.
