Though they are regularly grouped in the jam band genre, and their milieu includes many of the trappings of the latter day hippie including twirling dancers and tapers, the Chicago-born band’s sound is considerably more developed than the typical noodlers.  They take elements of a variety of styles and merge them into a unified whole.  With songs that reference prog rockers from the 1970s and solid improvisational skills, the band is definitely a one-of-kind phenomenon.  Brock Butler from Perpetual Groove opens with a solo set.
