They both began writing songs and jamming as far back as 1996 and soon formed the band "Generation Gap" that consisted of him and Kamin, a musician he met when Kamin began dating his sister, and a few much older musicians.
At this stage, the band also had saxophonist, Benny Golbin, giving the songs a more jazzy sound reminiscent of Dave Matthews Band.
