BLASTPHAMUS / Bio

New to the ATX music scene is the instrumental octet BLASTPHAMUS, a power funk band featuring four horns and a full rhythm section. Influences include jazz funk acts like Lettuce, Soulive, Tower of Power, Trombone Shorty, and Karl Denson.

Richard Calderon anchors BLASTPHAMUS on drums along with Darren (DeeRob) Robinson on bass, Marc Lionetti on guitar, and Andy Rumelt on keyboards. The group's unique horn section consists of Darren Workman on bass trombone, Roland Perez on sax, Karlos Elizondo on trumpet, and trombonist Allen Sanders, who also leads the group.

The members of BLASTPHAMUS wanted to create a musician’s band that also gets the crowd movin' and shakin'. A guest singer joins the mix now and then, but aside from that, the group is all instrumental, all the time. Hard-hitting funk grooves, a high energy horn section, and soaring instrumental solos combine to create BLASTPHAMUS' signature sound.
