The New Jersey sextet who released six records, since their formation in 1997 and enjoyed cumulative worldwide sales of over three million units before disbanding in 2011 originally reformed (at two days notice) in 2016 to play the Sound on Sound Festival in Atlanta, although in typical Thursday fashion, it was the charitable element of their performance that enticed them and not the almighty dollar.
