Think of a person dancing mindlessly with a huge smile on their face~that's SuperFunk

SuperFunk Fantasy has always had only one goal onstage: don't stop til you get down on it and shake your booty down to the ground all night long. So we cut out all the boring parts of songs and, like a DJ, we don't ever stop...because we want you on the dance floor the whole time we're onstage. We need you to have fun as much as you need us to have fun. Look away for a minute and you might forget we're a live band. And no, contrary to what the skeptics say, we don't lip sync; and we made up our own dance moves...except for the one on Tainted Love...we stole that one from another band that you'll never see anyway. €B~}

Playing all the dance and party hits from the 70s to today. Non-stop!

Getting people on the dance floor and keeping them there all night. And being silly.
Gravy Flavored Kisses
Gravy Flavored Kisses
Gravy Flavored Kisses was founded in March 2010 by J. Chester Castellaw and Damon Motto. “It’s a closely guarded secret. But what I can tell you is that it’s Popeye’s related”, explained Motto when asked of the origins of the unique band name.

Gravy Flavored Kisses’ style dares you to pigeonhole it into one genre. The influences of blues, rock n’ roll, reggae, and gospel can be recognized through
out their repertoire. The result is a mixture of dirty blues riffs, soulful rock melodies, blaring horns, and infectious grooves that combine to form music that is diverse, energetic and light on pretense.

They released their debut EP In the Red in November 2011. In the Red features songs about a late night bacchanal, a woman on a murderous rampage, a wife’s plan to wait for her wealthy, elderly husband to expire, and a tragic Mardi Gras Day. “If In the Red was about women behaving badly, the theme of The Mail EP is women behaving badly and men behaving even worse” says Castellaw about the group’s newest EP, which is slated to be released in early November 2012.

The Kisses have been busy in 2012. Along with recording sessions, an impromptu Mardi Gras sidewalk show, performances at Uptown’s Le Bon Temps Roule, and playing festivals in southeastern Louisiana, they have branched out to the Gulf Coast. They spent the better part of the summer making a big splash at bars, blues clubs, festivals and honky tonks in Alabama and Florida.

And 2013 promises to be even busier. Look for a full length album, performances at world famous New Orleans venues, and shows in your neck of the woods.

Ben Miller Band
Ben Miller Band
Hailing from Joplin, Missouri, The Ben Miller Band is a one-of-a kind trio that combines the frenetic energy of bluegrass, the soul of the delta blues and the haunted spirit of Appalachian mountain music. Band members Ben Miller, Scott Leeper, and Doug Dicharry create a unique and modern sound while continuing the tradition of blending together many different musical styles, which has long been a trait of their native Ozarks.

Poet and songwriter since childhood, Ben Miller started playing guitar at age 16. He soon left his home in Curlew, Washington and began his musical career on the streets of Northern Europe, playing his distinctive delta-blues slide guitar and honing his one-man-band performance style which now includes guitar, banjo, harmonica, and foot percussion. Armed with a plethora of earthy songs about prostitutes, meth, scriptures, and the meaning of life, he met Scott and Doug in Joplin, Missouri and formed the Ben Miller Band in 2004.

Washtub bass player, Scott Leeper started playing drums at age 7 and by age 10 he was wowing audiences in his family’s band, The Leeper’s. Throughout his career Scott has played in a duo with his brother, performed as a one-man country act, and played drums for various blues artists. Finally, in 2004, Scott began playing the one-stringed washtub bass and singing backup vocals with pitch-perfect harmony for The Ben Miller Band. Comprised of a weed eater string attached to a wooden pole, this is not your ordinary bass. "Playing that thing may sound simple but it is deceptively difficult," says Ben of his musical comrade. “You have to adjust the tension to change the note. It is incredible to watch him do it. We always have a few bass players right up on him in complete disbelief.”

Drummer and percussionist Doug Dicharry started playing trombone in the 6th grade and continued to study music throughout his college years. As an Air Force brat growing up, Doug moved across the globe every two years. During this time he assimilated an array of musical styles, from punk to ska, to progressive noise and school marching bands. In high school, he began playing trombone in various bands while teaching himself to play the drums. In 2004 he picked up the washboard, and with a bit of homemade ingenuity, made it electric. During that time, he met Ben at an open mic night in Joplin, Missouri and “followed him until he had to hire him.” Now Doug plays drums, trombone, trumpet, mandolin, percussion, electric washboard, and electric spoons for the Ben Miller Band. "I basically have musical A.D.D," says Dicharry. "Playing all these instruments isn’t hard, it’s just loading them in and out that’s hard. I feel sorry for whoever becomes my tech."

Despite the eccentric and out-of-the-box appearance of The Ben Miller Band, "we're not some kind of gimmick band," says Ben Miller. "Just because we use junk to make music doesn't mean we aren't serious about it. We are legitimately making real music, and when you hear us play I think you get that."

Together for the past eight years, and playing over two hundred shows every year, The Ben Miller Band has crafted a tight, dynamic, and amazingly original sound that captivates and embraces people of all generations.
