Stylistically, MMB is reminiscent of 70s & 80s flavored, prog-rock. But while influenced by groups such as Pink Floyd, Yes, Deep Purple, Kansas, ELP, and Styx, MMB music is undeniably unique. It features bold chord progressions alongside instrumentation that ranges from artfully tasteful to technically brilliant ... but puts intricate melodies and vocal harmonies front and center.

Played out for nearly 20 years in various cover bands ... I quit that when it ceased to be fun any more.
I suppose at the earliest level, late sixties and early seventies bands like Three Dog Night, Hollies, Beatles, Chicago, Grand Funk and such. A little later, and as a keyboard player, I was swept away by the prog scene and bands like Yes, ELP, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, ELO, Kansas, Styx, and the likes.
heh ... a bunch ... main set-up is a Quad Core Intel based DAW, Fireface 800, SONAR v8, Wavelab, Waves plugs and others. Main keys include Motif XS8, Korg M3, and Korg CX3 organ - a bunch more - too much to list.
