BandRockBlues

Our music is meant to transcend genre and style. Through the power of music we hope to reconnect the audience with the Infinite Universe and ignite a fire in the depths of the listener to awaken the slumbering soul of the disillusioned masses. We hope to inspire, enlighten, and empower the people.

Biography

We have a heavy groove with a psychadelic edge inspired by blues, rock, reggae, and jazz. Our major influences are Jimi Hendrix, Carlos Santana, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, SRV, Bob Marley, Buddy Guy, Frank Zappa, Robin Trower, and Miles Davis. What sets us apart from other bands is the powerful, soulful guitar playing of Sly Mcgee, mixed with a groovy, funky, jazzy bass player, and a power drummer with a hard rock influence. Each of us bring something different to the mix which has lead the band down a creatively original path.

Discography

We are releasing an album in the spring of 2007 for Freebird Records entitled "Astrogazm".
