A true fusion of funk, jazz and good ol' rock n' roll. Hundreds of fans gather for the groove when Psychedelic Breakfast plays their infamous East Coast gigs. In three short years, PB has become a firmly established mainstay on the New England concert scene. PB (as they are known by fans) plays tonight with a midweek show at the River City Saloon. There will be a cover.
Last year was PB's coming out party. Traveling extensively throughout the country, PB developed a growing and loyal fan base. Last year PB set out on its first national tour highlighted by performances at the 2002 High Sierra Music Festival in Quincy, Calif.
The band takes an intensely heightened approach to music. Complex arrangements, interesting melodies and memorable song writing have allowed the band to capture the same magic as many of their influences.
Not only do the fans relish in the band's popular originals, but they find equal delight at the band's reinventions of favorites from Zappa, George Clinton, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Cream, Hendrix, Chili Peppers and Grateful Dead songbooks to name a few.
Winning awards is nothing new to Psychedelic Breakfast. The December 2001 issue of Revolving Door Magazine bestowed six year-end honors on this inventive quartet. The New Haven Advocate best summed up PB's special blend: “The band is out-and-out fun. Pure, uncut. Such is Psychedelic Breakfast's broad appeal that, substance-infused or not, you can still admire the prowess these young musicians have harnessed (and appreciate the hip-swaying sound)."
The Big Island, based in Portland, brings its honey-sweet jam to the Saloon this Friday for a 9:30 p.m. show.
The Shindig pack a powerful punch from their multi-style arsenal of tunes. From blues to bluegrass, rock to funk, latin and jazz.
