Limbs took root in the Summer of 2011, the seedling of an impromptu collaboration between EDM maestro DJ Kage, freestyling MC Ty James and the psychedelic rock group, The Messy Blend, consisting of drummer Nick Jenkins and guitarists/bassists Travis Patten and Alex Fischels . The fivesome wasted no time establishing their chemistry and synthesizing their musical characters and influences into a danceable, funky and melodic sound that has stumped concert goers striving for classification. Creative tags such as "Funk-hop Jamtronica" have been tossed about, and the band has been compared to diverse acts ranging from MGMT and Joy Division to the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Iggy and the Stooges. While their genre has been hard to pin down, their appeal has not. Limbs turns wallflowers into participants, and those in the front row into loyal fans. The sound is experimental, but the songs are catchy, accessible, deeply felt and range dynamically in energy. Limbs move in many moods, lyrically and musically. The fellas have been pulling audiences into the groove from Chicago to Des Moines over the past year with their high-energy live show, and long to see you soon.
