Planet Jam' is an evolving fusion of Eastern and Western music and culture. Planet Jam music has rippin' rock solos, poppin' reggae rhythms and fresh Gypsy licks, dubby and tight, modern with ancient tap roots. Planet Jam lyrics say stuff that makes sense. They positively present ideas of change about border issues, political hypocrisy, seven generation awareness, freedom of expression, spiritual and cultural evolution as well as experiences that Marius had in the Romanian Army as a draftee Private during that country's 1989 revolution.
In September 2007, Kini Wade joined the band on the drums, Steven Abramson (from Living Earth and Woody Harelson) sat in on keyboards, and World Class Percussionist Cecil Carter polished the beats.
After teaming up with Owen Rose on Drums and Jared Koeppel Planet Jam released "Bob Marley pe Romaneste", a collection of Bob's songs translated into Romanian language by Marius. International collaboration of Owen Rose on Drums, Glen Gross on Trumpets, Malik Alkabir on Saxophone helped on the "Light at the End of the Tunnel" CD also out in 2014, with special guest appearances by Original General Smiley from legendary dub pioneer duo Michigan & Smiley, and Arjun Baba from world famous Qwali music group Fannah Fi Allah.
Currently On drums: Josh Moore and William Lemon. Joe Profe Whitley On Percussion.
In Romania: Piti from E.M.I.L. on drums and Alex Bubble on Keyboards.
