Niacin is a neo-fusion instrumental trio featuring Billy Sheehan, Dennis Chambers and John Novello. Founded in 1996, the band's name comes from the timbral foundation of the Hammond B3 organ; vitamin B3 is also known as niacin. While the members pursue solo and sideman projects, they have continued to record and tour as a unit to remarkable critical and fan success - given the narrow and decidedly non-commercial focus of instrumental fusion as a genre.
