A fiery improvisational rock trio whose focus on songcrafting and stylistic diversity offer their listeners much more than the average "jam-band."
"Few bands today maintain the musical influence of what rock should be, but Thinking Plyers is one of those bands. They deliver an amazing musical journey everytime they perform. They are sure to please the creative mind inside us all."

"Thinking Plyers have developed the distinctly Deadhead attitude that it’s cool to be serious about music and have fun with it at the same time. The result is music that’s
enjoyable to listen to but doesn’t insult your intelligence. These people understand what music is all about."
Lake Charles, LA
For more than a decade psychedelic groove-rockers, Thinking Plyers, have been electrifying audiences with their dynamic live performances. They are a power trio known best for their fiery jams, infectious melodies, and captivating stage presence. These seasoned performers fly through an impressive repertoire of original material and obscure covers with sheer virtuosity, soul, and a little humor, too. Thinking Plyers are dedicated to preserving the high-energy rock ’n’ roll experience begun by 60’s rockers like The Beatles, the Grateful Dead, and Jimi Hendrix. The scope of their music stretches far beyond the limits of traditional Rock music with Classical and Americana providing much of the inspiration for their songs. Their improvisational dialect is taken more from Jazz and East Indian music than from other jam bands; offering a refreshing new sound that is edgy and raw, yet strangely soothing - think Van Morrison and Pink Floyd meets Rush with a hint of Ravi Shankar, if you will.
Thinking Plyers formed in South Louisiana in 1993 when the Westbrook twins invited Colin Allured, a new student, to join their school’s jazz band. The jazz band lasted only a few months but the rhythm section played on, eventually adopting their curious moniker, Thinking Plyers. The spelling of the word "pliers" was altered to imply a deeper meaning - Travelers of Thought.
What began as youthful experimentation has since become a way of life. Thinking Plyers is now a full-time operation and has experienced tremendous success and growth in recent years. Since dedicating themselves to the road back in 2001, they have played over 150 self-booked shows throughout the Southeast US, aggressively pursuing local press, radio, and TV outlets in every market they visit. In an effort to steer clear of typical Music Industry pitfalls, the Plyers have resolved to building their fanbase the grassroots way - one fan at a time. With a mailing list that continues to steadily multiply and currently rests at 10-fold what it was only two years ago, its quite obvious they must be doing something right!
In March of 2003 Thinking Plyers released their third independent album, Fourteen Real Dreams. It is a concept album that takes the listener on a 70-minute journey through the dreamscapes of a mind not unlike his own, twisting and turning through emotions, sounds, and styles in a cohesive flow of eclecticism that represents the very best of Thinking Plyers as composers, performers, and thought travelers. The self-produced release was recorded in Nashville and features several notable players including saxophonist Jeff Coffin (Bela Fleck and the Flecktones) and pedal steel guitarist Shan Farmer (Ricochet). Psychedelic artist William Fields painted the stunning cover pieces, Eye of the Sphinx and Magus.
With a decade of experience as a creative unit, an intense do-it-yourself attitude, and a grassroots approach to touring, Thinking Plyers are fast becoming an undeniable musical force. Experience their sound today!
