A few words about the band:

 

Last Charge of the Light Horse was formed in 2004 as a vehicle for songwriter Jean-Paul Vest's off-beat tunes, and has remained constantly in motion in the years since. Never content to stay with one musical style for long, Vest has released five albums and an EP, gaining mention in several "Best of the Year" lists and heavy rotation on college radio, charting as high as #1 on stations around the country. Much like the music, the lineup of the group has evolved over the years. Orginially a trio which included Vest and the father/son team of Artie and A. J. Riegger, the stage lineup has expanded to a quartet, with Vest currently joined by drummer Shawn Murray, lead guitarist Bob Stander, and bassist Pemberton Roach. West-coast pals Jim Watts and Pam Aronoff have also become regular contributors on the group's releases.
