According to band leader Graham Wood Drout IKO IKO have been playing in Miami for over 30 years. We caught the legendary Dade County killers live at Q American Barbeque on the West End of Miami's Design District on Saturday night. We asked the band if we could record some songs, Graham thought about it then said, "Sure, do whatever you want." After the show he said "Let the people know. We've always supported tapers."

Lest you doubt their credibility, here are a few words from a 1992 New Times article about IKO IKO.

"A partial list of the acts Drout and company have opened for includes Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, Muddy Waters, George Thorogood, John Lee Hooker, Sam and Dave, B.B. King, Jaco Pastorius, and Delbert McClinton. They've jammed with Ron Wood, Bobby Keys, and legendary bluesman Willie Dixon. Super-guitarist David Bromberg sat in with them for a blistering set at the Road. They've graced a baker's dozen festivals, a national Coors Light radio spot, and the movie Cape Fear (in a cameo)."
