They play a repertoire that is in the largest part Western Swing tunes recorded before 1940. Western Swing began to take on a little of a big band swing sound after WW II. This group prefers the rough and ready sound that was extant prior to WW II, that seems more solidly grounded in the event of rural life. They feel it has a more overtly joyous sound, which developed during the Great Depression, as an antidote to the crushing poverty of that period in American history. They also play earlier American rural music that Western Swing evolved from, from Appalachian fiddle tunes, to early blues and field songs.
