I've recently watched their live dvd and I'm impressed. They're just a session band that contains of few really famous musicians, yet there's no ego clash on stage, when it comes to music their communication is flawless.

219 The Band Apart The Band Apart The Band was a Canadian-American roots rock group formed in 1965 . Which originally consisting of Rick Danko (bass guitar, double bass, fiddle, vocals), Levon Helm (drums, mandolin, guitar, vocals), Garth Hudson (keyboards, saxophones, trumpet), Richard Manuel (piano, drums, vocals) and Robbie Robertson more.

Nobody ever mentioned these guys? One of the most stand out indie rock band in the Japanese indie music scene. They've been labeled as "Musician's Musician", and many of VK artist turn out to be really giving them a respect of their music. Fuses many elements of jazz, rock, punk, funk, electronica, even more, their music is somewhat complex but catchy.

Seen them live before and constantly being captivated by their performance! Brilliant!
