What to you get when a metal head, a rocker, and a major Pink Floyd fan come together to form a band? You get the Progressive Rock band known as Insoluble, that’s what.

On November 9 the western New York rockers took the stage at the Hard Rock Cafe in Niagara Falls for a performance of their original music with a few cover tunes thrown in.

A trio of long time musicians, Insoluble’s songs are more like short symphonies with mini movement of varying rhythms and time signatures. There are even pieces where each band member is playing in a different time signature to come together for a complex composition of rhythm and sound.

Fans of Pink Floyd, Yes, and King Crimson would enjoy listening to what Insoluble has to offer. Even Jimi Hendrix fans will find something to like in the band.

Along with covers of “All Along the Watchtower”, “Bad Romance”, and a Steve Vai piece; the night’s music included “Blue Whale”, “Eat the Elephant”, “Insolu-Waltz”, “Black Goat”, “Frost”, “Anuris”, “The Hunt”, and “For the Love of God”.

In an age where the radio airwaves are filed with songs full of booming beats, the music of Insoluble is a refreshing and pleasant change.
