Lead singer Hans Eberbach, riding a top the white lightning of bright blasts of horns and jumped up rhythm took fans to total meltdown with each and every show.
After a parting of ways in the Nibbler camp in May of 2012 that left Eberbach jettisoned from the band, 6 of the 8 members of the Nibblers rejoined him in the fall of 2012 to form a new take on that same hot sound.
