The band gave a Joe Cocker "Mad Dogs and Englishmen" tribute concert at the 2015 Lockn' Festival featuring alumni musicians from that album including Leon Russell, Roberta Flack and Dave Mason.
The band's first three albums were published by Sony Masterworks, but their 2016 album Let Me Get By was released on Fantasy Records. Produced by Trucks, the album debuted at number 15 on the Billboard Top 200 album sales chart.
