International Blues Challenge organized by The Blues Foundation of America, Memphis, Tennessee, USA, in February, 2007. They were semi-finalists and performed at The Rum Boogie Café (Blues Club of The Year) on BEALE STREET alongside 150 other bands and musicians from all over the world. They were also part of the International Roots “On The Move” Festival, 2007 where they performed concerts and workshops all over North East India. The band recently returned from a tour of U.S.A, , playing in over 15 different venues. The phenomenal response they received got them more shows and a bigger tour of The U.S.A in 2011.
