Biography

Mainly Instrumental Fusion of Rock, Funk, and Jazz. Funky Grooves, Eclectic Improvs, Heavy Playing characterize this electric trio. 3 instrumental gurus get together for Zeppelin meets King Crimson meets '70s Jeff Beck funk with a little Monk style jazz thrown in. Space Rock at it's finest!
Dave and Jerry began their longtime musical collaboration and friendship in 2001 slaving at Northwestern University, played together with the eight piece swing band The Sound and the Fury and the festival blues band Blues Savant.
Jerry King ( a percussion major, Bloom School of Jazz veteran, and pupil of local jazz drummer Joel Spencer) is one of the busier drummers on the Chicago scene with seats in local bands Help Desk, Dave Roth and the Issues, and Frank Tribes Band, as well past rock outfit Moxie Blue.
Dave Sistanich studied jazz guitar under former Gary Burton sideman Jerry Hahn at Portland State University and went on to play in jam and funk bands the Jiggle Show and Illogic as well as several gigs playing standards before coming back to Chicago to join Jerry in the aforemetioned collaborations. This complex instrumental music has brewed beneath the surface for a couple of years. After recording a one shot EP with West Coast bassist Greg Jackson, Thom Miecznikwowski was recruited to fill the bass chair. Thom is a longtime veteran of the Chicago rock and jazz/fusion scene, with recent stints in fusion band Toolbox, MoonZoo, and pop band Life on Mars. We are now ready to rock, groove, and blow minds whilst spreading our aura across vast continents. Excelsior!!!!!
