Bio:
House Of The Rising Funk - a big ole mess of Southern Fried Swamp

Something primal is happening. Something slathered in funk, born of southern rock, and inspired by jazz fusion. Real jazz fusion, like Miles Davis, Medeski Martin & Wood and Mahavishnu Orchestra; something that should notify you all that men can rise out of a swamp, plug in their instruments of choice and knock the brain out of your skull with a sonic assault that still boggles the mind. House of The Rising Funk consist of four men: Brian Quarles (guitar),Mike Bartlett (saxaphones), Lee Gibson (drums) and Scott Belcher (bass) and yes they have been known to feast on gator meat dipped in a side of the days freshest roadkill cocktail sauce.

The spirit of true jazz fusion is alive again and such a thing now-a-days is as rare as the Loch Ness monster and as powerful as Sasquatch. When House of The Rising Funk takes the stage the chosen many are sonically annihilated with head-banging, groovalicious, rumpus-ruckus-rock. The crowds come to take part in the fun and chaos, hollering to all the calls and responses, beating their cowbells, and getting down with the infectious grooves. When House Of The Rising Funk leaves the stage the audience are left in a zombic state as if they just had their brains funked out after what had been up to that moment, a normal day.

Not only do House of The Rising Funk push the boundaries of multiple styles, this band has a truly engaging sound, a heaping helping of Southern Fried Swamp! It is like a good jambalaya– you have some growling bass and drums that makes a good, dark, dirty roux, mixed heartily with some meaty rhythms, combined liberally with fresh offerings from the guitar that are like broiled crawfish straight out of the swamp, topped with the hot spice of the jazz style saxophone, and finally garnished with a generous portion of the days freshest roadkill cocktail sauce, and you have House Of The Rising Funk – a scrumptious, spicy, dirty band that will make you stomp your feet, shake your ass and howl at the moon on a full moon night!
