The international line-up play a large repertoire of multi-lingual covers, with a rich vocal style likened to bands such as The Beach Boys or The Beatles.

They were "discovered" by the likes of Sir Elton John and Nicolas Sarkozy while performing at the famous Niçois restaurant "La Petite Maison", and have been mainstays of the private party circuit of the rich and famous ever since. Founder Didier Casnati claims "we are the most famous band you have never heard of".
