Since Greg's basement in 2006, we have been writing ska and punk music for our friends to dance to. Our number one interest is to have fun and see our fans have fun, the rest is just detils. We practice when we can, and play when we can, and are always open to requests. Our music is about integrity, which is why we are and will always be willing to play for anyone who wants to hear us. -DMWW
Behind the name:
Rumor has it that many years ago, at the Illinois State Fair in Springfield, IL (where we are from) there was an elephant named Winkie who managed to grab a child with his trunk and toss him across the pen. Thus Don't Mess With Winkie became a pretty self explanatory saying. And that's why lots of our logos feature our version of "Winkie" the elephant
