Described by many as a band where every member has equal shred capabilities, Mars Retrieval Unit brings it to the table with their fusion of space funk, rock and psychedelia. As a unit, MRU defines the word genre-hoppers, and leaves no musical rock unturned and no minds un-spaced.
The music is danceable, sometimes cerebral, with both female and male vocals cutting through a densely crafted wall of sound. With the addition of saxophone to a jam band – you will hear nothing else like it.
When High Ceiling formed in 2004, the group had an early love and admiration for roots reggae music and also the jazz influenced musicianship, improvised playing, and eclectic sound of bands in the jam scene. Through their years of continued musical study and the growth that comes from playing music together week after week, year after year, the group’s playing evolved until they were writing songs in a style truly all their own; a unique fusion of reggae, funk, and trance music with unpredictable instrumental tangents.
