~~"They say you get better with age and as these guys bring back a time for all of us we never appreciated as much as we do today, the memories are priceless, and Wildflower has once again bloomed into the musical ear candy they were back in the day, only now we can say we knew them then and now...... It's truly love at first groove..." - Sam Genova (DJ Sam Reno)
