The Royal Noise
For fans of New Mastersounds, Lettuce, and Herbie Hancock.
Philadelphia's The Royal Noise forges an ebullient fusion of sinewy funk, gritty jazz, psychedelic rock and live hip-hop elements with a distinctly southern flavor, reminiscent of funk fusion acts like Herbie Hancock, Lost Tribe, Lettuce and Mother Funk Conspiracy.
Since then, they have performed consistently across the East Coast with little regard for stylistic conventions. Their high energy performances, strengthened by the addition of Andrew Toy (formerly of Scythian) in early 2013, deliver shape-shifting whirlwinds of tireless grooves, catchy melodies, incessant experimentation and ever-evolving, earthy jams soaked in heavy East Coast funk. The band's dynamic elasticity, musical mastery and their ability to blend the lines between composition and improvisation set them apart from their peers and keep avid listeners returning to shows.
"Whatever you choose to call it, jazz, rock or funk, the Royal Noise makes instrumental music that moves like heavy machinery light on its feet." - Bill Deyoung, Connect Savannah
"One of the best live funk acts to emerge from the East Coast in a long while" - Simon Eddie, Home Grown Music Network
"the whole band is a pack of rhythm devils" - Brian Robbins, JamBands.com
Chit Nasty Band
Chit is known for his rock and roll, gospel piano playing, soulful vocal delivery, and over all being a funkster. As the former front man of Boston’s rock/soul/funk/reggae band “The Nasties”, Chit has made music with some of the most talented musicians from his alma mater, Berklee College of Music. Showmanship and stage presence have become well noted aspects of Chit’s live performances. Chit is joined on stage by an allstar lineup of fellow local musicians, Gerran Gotti Adams on Drums, Andy Kleindienst on Bass, Jackson Manuel and John Faltass on guitars, as well as the entire rhythm and vocal section. The band and the songs will take you higher, make you feel scandalous, loved, accepted, and over all feel good deep down in your soul. Have a listen and get ready to take a trip to Nasty Nation!
Take the Funk of the 70s, 80s, and 90s…..add the flavor of some Contemporary, Smooth, Latin, and Traditional Jazz……combine that with the Funk influence of Roger Troutman and other FunkMasters….mix it with strong drums and bass bottom…..sprinkle some horns occasionally with a little Prince guitar (rhythm and lead)…..then bring it all together with today’s technology in keyboards, digital recording, mixing, and mastering….and what do you have?
