The Detentions.  A mix of Country, Americana and Folk that they like to call "Rockamole". And they are now in the Music Hut. There are two of their CDs in the Music Hut, "The Detentions" and "Rockamole". There are some really great Trop Rock songs in there too and we have been playing them for a couple of months now on the air. And some songs I've heard also play on Sirius/XM Margaritaville too. And their other songs are pretty darn good as well. Check 'em out and download their music HERE from the Music Hut.

Congrats on his nominations as a finalist at the Trop Rock Music Association Awards this year!
