While the band was widely known for their energetic live performances, it was their three albums (Push Down & Turn, 12 Days in April, and Undone) as well as their 4 song EP that kept the band on the forefront of the music scene throughout their career.

PD&T was formed nearly 25 years ago, in 1991, when the five band members - Jason Brown (Vocals), Sam King (Guitar), Tay Bourquein (Bass), Jason Barth (Keyboards) and Matt DeVore (Drums) met at DePauw University in Greencastle, IN. Their nearly 12 year run included extensive performances in the Midwest college and club circuit, and tours on the East Coast, from Portland, Maine to Florida. Favorite cities included Chicago, St. Louis, Chattanooga, and of course New York City, to name a few. Push Down & Turn performed with some of the best known acts of the 90's including The Counting Crows, Blues Traveler, Dada, The BoDeans, Peter Frampton, Ben Folds Five, Train, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Beck, The Samples, Neil Young, The Smithereens and more. The band was a fixture at Indiana University and Purdue University headlining annual events like Little 500, Grand Prix, Slater Slammer, and a host of others. Notable performances included the Horde Festival Tour in 1997, including stops at the World Music Theater in Chicago, and the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, New Jersey. PD&T also appeared on the main-stage in front of 20,000+ fans at Deer Creek Music Center for X-Fest '99.
