Cosmic Butter is what I like to call a Sci-Fi Funk band . The music pays homage to the originators of funk and sci -fi films of the 1970s and 80s. People like James Brown, Sun Ra, Sly and the Family Stone, Parliament Funkadelic, Zapp and Prince are some of our influences. We enjoy things that groove and get nasty. Our main goal as a band is to help you shake your ass and learn the funk philosophy of the one.
To break it down ...On the groove side of things Dave Rue and Todd Pidcock lay down a solid rythim with drum and bass. Respectively they are both two solid individuals but together they can work up a deep sweat. It is hard just to listen to them play and not get to moving. I mean it thumps! And on the dirty side of things, well that would be me. I am Arch Oboler aka Dr. Future, and I write the sweet nothings that make you smile and say ....Ahh, I don't feel comfortable now. Oh and I also lay down the cosmic keys, and try the best I can to take you out of this world . And if that was not enough, recently we have added a new member to the mix! Kyle Rinker, or Special K. as I like to call him is now playing guitar with us. He comes from a gospel back ground with a love for soul music . We are glad to have him aboard and I think you will be to. But you ask how did it all start?
The whole thing began in 2014 with three friends and their love of Funk and Soul Music. I had played in Cicada Omega with Todd and Dave, and we had always talked about making this thing happen, but it seemed like there was never enough time to start a project like this, till Now! And now that it is on, well there ain't no stopping this train. We hope you come on aboard with us some time, Its bound to be a wild ride.
