The best kept secret in music


"Original Music for Cool People"

"...someone handed us a flyer that announced a band called Thought playing "original music for cool people" at the Montage Grille for free. We left and checked them out. "Original is right." This young band did not sound like anyone else in the world. They started with some hand clapping Polynesian song and then some country sounding thing and then a funk piece that had several movements. One of the lyrics that stuck with me was, "You think about that. I'll think about this." They were thoroughly enjoyable. Fresh, all the way. Check them out." - Rochester beat

"Unsigned band's unique style well recieved by students"

"... they played a 24-song set and kept up their energy and enthusiasm throughout...For the most part, everyone seemed to be unable to stop tapping their feet and the dance floor was often full." - the Leader

"Better than another CD"

"... The band is well rounded with two alto saxes, bass trumpet, and power trio. That night's music was funk-based with heavy bass grooves and harmonizing vocal improvisations- good jams that you could certainly dance to if you were so inclined... The crowd ws big, the music was live and loud, and the people were dancing." - Campus Times Online

Feeling a bit camera shy


Thought is: TIM ALLEN.electricguitar. PJ BOECKEL.electricbass LYNN LIGAMMARI. voice.altosax JARED SCHONIG. drums.funk MICHAEL WILLIAMS.voice.basstrumpet

Upon first listening to recent Brooklyn transplants Thought, the audience is greeted by a colorful horn trio which immediately sets them apart from other bands. Once the audience has succumbed to the melodic fanfare, they discover that the power trio of horns is being driven by the equally powerful trio of Electric Guitar, Electric Bass, and Drums. Emerging from this bedrock of rhythm and sound is a spirited, intertwined female/male vocal duet that sings lyrical stories of people and their relationships with life, both past and present. In short this is Thought, the Power – Pop Sextet.

Having six years of experience playing together as a band under their belts, Thought has played to thousands of people throughout Upstate New York, Canada and New York City. The members of Thought have both collectively and individually shared the stage with such notables as; Mike Gordon (Phish), Medeski, Martin and Wood, Dresden Dolls, Eliott Sharp, Butch Morris, Antibalas, Kenny Wolleson (Bill Frisell Band), Jon Ellis, Ulu, Zozo Afrobeat, Jerseyband, Beyondo, Rhubarb, Lazlo Holyfield, Donny McCaslin and many, many more. Aside from their numerous live shows Thought has recorded two studio EPs, including their latest self titled effort recorded in Downtown Brooklyn December 2005.
