* StepUpToTheMicrophone: Billy Greer on "Look at the Time" on ''Somewhere to Elsewhere'', his only lead vocal in studio (see Vocal Tag Team). Robby Steinhardt has stepped away from the band on a full time basis, but does show up to sing and play violin on a couple of shows per tour.
* UncommonTime: Many of their songs. While they usually don't get as complex as 7/4 or 5/4, they can get ridiculous at times. "The Spider", for example, begins in 11/16 and goes just about everywhere from there.

* VocalTagTeam: Happens on most of their albums. Steve Walsh has sung the majority of the band's output (including all of the hits when he was a member of the band), but Robby Steinhardt has had a role in many of their other well-known songs, such as "Down the Road" and "Miracles out of Nowhere". ''Vinyl Confessions'' was an Elefante/Steinhardt tag team as well. With Steve Walsh retiring and Robby Steinhardt amicably splitting from the band, the team is now carried by Walsh's replacement Ronnie Platt and bassist Billy Greer, usually singing Steve and Robby's parts respectively.

** There's also "Miracles out of Nowhere", which follows a seemingly random pattern consisting of 4/4, 7/8, 9/8, 11/8, and 13/8 in the intro. There's also an instrumental break halfway through the song that is in 7/8 before going back into the aforementioned intro.
