My cousin is trying to turn me on to these guys. Anyone have opinions about them? Listened to some you tube stuff. They appear to be extremely talented and enjoyable.

Meh. I never understood the attraction, but to each their own.

Add- I should add I've never seen them live, though!

They do jam. One thing I am impressed about is they do not sound like anyone. They do covers very very well.

Never saw them live either. Watched them on TV before to try and see if I liked it. I could take them or leave them. Good enough musicians but I did not want to get up and dance around the living room.
And leave it on!

I like what I've heard. Their musicianship is stellar. They JAM with energy. Sort of metal meets jam band and a bit Phish-like. Not a big Phish fan at all though.
