Dream Theater one of the most celebrated progressive rock bands with ultra-melodic keyboard ad-libs (Rudess), enormous guitar riff progressions (Petrucci), flabby out-of-this-world 6-string bass representation (Myung), synco-pated over-32-beat drum rolls (Portnoy), and variety of high pitched voice (LaBrie) all wrapped in a majestic work of artistry.



Dream Theater was formed by founding members bassist John Myung, drummer Mike Portnoy and guitarist John Petrucci in 1986 while studying at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. At which point, they dropped off the conservatory to concentrate playing in their new formed band. Dream Theater is the name of choice which the group got from Mike Portnoy's father. Now emerging to the music scene for the past 2 decades and still swells with their type of music for all musicians and music lovers to let out the passion within.
