They're prog rock influences frequently peak out through the sequencing creating a vibe somewhere between Pink Floyd and Drum and Bass. Since 200, core members Eric Gould, Darren Pujalet, and Steve Molitz have gelled into musical jet fuel, entertaining audiences across the U.S. and Europe, and joining forces with artists like Mickey Hart, Tea Leaf Green, Joe Satriani, and Robbie Krieger of The Doors.
