Sugoi formed during the winter thaw of 2004. After friends Rob Grabowski and Dave Ferraris decided to begin the process of starting another music project (after disbanding The Full Williams Trio, San Francisco), the search began. Two months was all that it took to find bandmates Alec Silver and Scott Greene, both of whom were veterans of a diverse and growing D.C. music scene. The foursome immediately began work on producing a solid staple of original material that incorporates everything from straight ahead roots-based rock and funked out jazz to ballsy blues and reggae-sweetened compositions 'For better or worse, the term 'jam band' conjures wandering 30-minute riffs, patchouli oil, and veggie burritos of dubious legality. None of that seems to relate much to Sugoi, who forgo aimless guitar noodles in favor of deep funk and jazz, giving their tunes a focus many other jammers lack.' - Download.com editor.
