Bump Kitchen / Press

“...Lucky for us, while other groove merchants have headed straight for the cover band circuit, Bump Kitchen has also been here keeping Grit City’s booties shakin’ with original funk jams. Bump Kitchen shows are known for intense energy and Harper’s rich, soulful vocals. But personally, my favorite part of the band’s set is when the Bittler runs through the crowd during a frenzied keytar solo. Really, the keytar deserves a revival on par with the whole cowbell comeback from a few years back. Are you with me, people? Maybe not. But I’m not the only one with a fever for more keytar. “When he jumps off and Tony jumps offstage, those cats become unglued,” James said. “The crowd loves it. The women love it, the guys love it. It’s just a great time.” ”

“Jazzbones has been a center of gravity for some of the best acts ever to grace the South Sound. It begins tonight with Bump Kitchen. Northwest funk, R&B, and blues amalgam Bump Kitchen have managed to make a name for themselves in recent years thanks to constant touring and some searing groove-craft.”

“Bobble Tiki likes to say he put the “bump” in Bump Kitchen �" always pointing toward his lap and doing one of those pelvic thrust moves with a wink. Typically, Bobble Tiki does this at Bump Kitchen shows, when trying to lure unsuspecting middle aged women drunk on white wine on to the dance floor. Sometimes it even works. At a Bump Kitchen show, there’s plenty of action like this to be had. Packing the dance floor with a body grabbing, booty shaking mix of groovin’ favorites and bumpin’ originals, Bump Kitchen is, like, the party band for the middle age club scene �" a cougar heavy, expensive jeans wearing, tanned and trimmed mob that should never be taken lightly.”

“Review Summary: Bump Kitchen’s latest release will resonate with fans of funk and blues alike. With a musical stew this delicious, listeners will more than likely come back for seconds once the album concludes.”
