"Listeners have described our music as contemprary and a style of new sounds contributed to the Jazz genre. We do want to make a point that, yes we are influenced by Jazz music, but we enjoy exploring music from Rock, Hip Hop, Grunge, Psycadelic Jam Bands, Electronic music, Rap, Pop.

We are a power house jam band that has grown from the soil of Seattle. But what distinguishes our sound to other jam bands, is that set is almost entirely original music and pushing the boundary of harmonic progressions (We are not a one chord jam band). We bypass artistic borders placed in Jazz music with the energy driven sounds of Soul Rock music creating a contemporary sound.

Our music is built on respect for all the great improvisers before us, such as Thelonious Monk, Miles Davis, Brian Blade, The Who, John Scofield, Ornette Coleman, Skerik, McTuff."
