Hipbone toured incessantly from 1995 until January 2000, keeping company with top-tier acts such as Fiona Apple, Dave Matthews Band, Widespread Panic and Charlie Hunter. The nucleus of the band -- whose music can be described as a soulful mix of G-Love, Ben Folds Five, Soul Coughing and Traffic -- was formed by songwriter Brion Snyder and drummer Kevin Brock, who met in college and who later regrouped in Chapel Hill, NC, with the idea of forming a band. With the addition of bassist Aaron Bittikofer and saxophonist Chris Bentley, who was gigging in Alabama with the likes of the Temptations and the Four Tops, Hipbone was complete. In 1998, the group's album The Brothers' Love and Movie made the top-10 album-of-the-year lists in both Spectator and Faze3.
