Synkopy 61(later just Synkopy)
co-founders of Brno rock scene in the early 60's, together with Blue Effect and Olympic the main representatives of Czech Rock School of 70's and 80's. Beginning in the west-coast style inspired by Beach Boys, later changed to a melodic hard rock (Uriah Heep-like) up to symphonic rock (Kansas-like), a little cramped trying to make "big art".
