Heard of CP, but never listened to his music before. Judging from how this sounds "unplugged," (which is very good) I bet this jams will all the "tech" incorporated . . .

Great music but the sound is a little distorted. I know it's their first time so totally understand!! Being them back!! 😷👏👍

Thanks Megan my kind of music. It is great

Excited to listen for the first time; great job!

Thanks for dedicating the evening to the shooting victims!

Great set! Love the harmonies! Thanks to all for this!

The ONLY good thing about listening to this at home is you guys can't hear me singing along 😂

Sounds great Chase!
