Playing live is one of the greatest feeling one can have,and we truly enjoy it. However we are currently creating this Improvisational Progressive, Stream of Consciousness Music in a studio setting and we have found that once we found our way into "The Stream of Consciousness" style of creating music we prefer to continue to stay in the stream. Freestyle has opened us up to a new realm & We are enjoying it too much at this time to bother practicing and repeating songs, It is way more rewarding to us to just continue creating new music, new material every time we play.
Classic Rock, Progressive Rock, King Crimson, Yes Emerson Lake & Palmer, Doors, Beatles, mostly all the music from the 70s
Whatever our new sponsor supplies us.

A lot of our music is posted on these 4 sights Myspace limits us to 50 uploads so this is why there are 4 sights so we could post close to 200 songs.
