Standby is a band of five, surprisingly young, musically-diverse, members. With influences of jazz, classic rock, metal, and all indie music, Standby portrays a sound like no other. Some might classify the group as a "jam band" as much of the recorded solos were improvised and their live shows display no musical limits. This aspect of Standby can be compared to Dave Matthews Band or John Butler Trio or even Grateful Dead as each of these bands are known for their improvisation-based live performances. Standby has been noted as having "Mesmerizing music," and the ability to, "Mix different genres together so fluently that it's pretty mind blowing." The almost unclassifiable, yet highly entertaining across the board, genre that Standby displays has also been described as, "Not exactly jazz or rock, but something around and in-between."
