We all decided that we really wanted to play some of our favorite classic Rock and Roll as well, so we mixed the two and started playing local venues over a year ago under the "Oak-Hill Boys" moniker. We are engineers and professionals who enjoy musical comradery and never lost our teenage desire to be in a band and play good music. electrondonors.com
