Classic rock, jazz, psychedelia and everything in between collide and fuse around the notion of discovery that jumps with ease from the composer to the listener... Pemberton is a multi-genre master and a clever lyricist who can convey fun while digging deep. Scott will perform outside on the Sun Deck, or move inside depending on weather.
