MoodTrain is a groove-oriented, melodic improv rock duo that plays entirely improvised sets of funky rock music. Their sets feature no set tunes, chord structures or framework of any kind; the only rule is that there are no rules. Travis Ziegler (guitar) and Verge Manyen (drums) communicate with each other and the audience by coaxing, teasing, taunting, torturing, painting with and pounding on their instruments while maintaining a groove that will keep any crowd moving. Repeated listens to MoodTrain will change the way your mind processes music.
