IZZ is a New York-based progressive rock band. Its music is inspired by such classic progressive groups as Genesis, Yes, King Crimson, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, and Renaissance and is often infused with pop hooks à la The Beatles. The band's name comes from the nickname of baseball relief pitcher Jason Isringhausen, who was once on the New York Mets, a team favored by John Galgano.

The group has performed at American progressive rock festivals RoSfest, NEARfest, The Rogue Independent Music Festival,[1] CalProg, and ProgDay.

IZZ’s album Crush of Night, was released in May 2012, and serves as Part 2 of a 3-part series of thematic albums that began with The Darkened Room in 2009. Featuring a guest appearance by Gary Green of Gentle Giant on Words and Miracles (electric guitar, guitar solos and backing vocals) and The Crush of Night (guitar solo).[2] Their latest album, Everlasting Instant was released in April 2015.
