Deep Fried 5 / Press

“Taking us through “Soul Food” they even did a “Soul Sacrifice” break with Congas and kit going through a quick jam that could have been a great longer break with some soloing on top. The Deep Fried 5 are doing a great archivist gig that would be comfortable on Brooklyn’s Daptone label.”

“Forgive us, dear readers, for this most transgressive of transgressions: Somehow we missed the delicious nugget of battered funk known as the Deep Fried 5. Usually we can be counted on to be abreast of the latest and greatest in our hometown funk sound — it doesn't take much — but somehow this six-piece managed to fly under our radar. But no more! These dudes have moved to the top of the chart in our heart with a sound finds the more commercial aspects of late-’70s soul — you know, when it was bumping uglies with the beast that was about to become disco. Deep Fried 5 celebrate the release of their debut album Saturday Night Funk, Sunday Morning Soul with the always awesome Biscuits N Gravy and the notorious DJ Doctor Wicklestein. ”

“Deep Fried Five, a band we had never heard of before, ended up playing the dreaded final slot. But that didn’t stop them from placing third. The bill was well-stacked genre-wise, and we hope that they made some new fans that night, because, honestly, our notes got a little wet around here and the only thing legible is “can’t think of synonyms for ‘funky fresh.’””
