Pink talking Fish
A Fusion of Pink Floyd, The Talking Heads and Phish!
Pink Talking Fish is the brainchild of Particle bassist, Eric Gould. Writing creative setlists from the repetoires of three amazing bands into one spectacular show is the spirit behind this project. The result is an epic musical experience. Gould partnered up with Particle's Ben Combe, who is a master vocalist and guitarist and shares an intense passion for the music of these acts. Together, they explore the areas where these songs can collaborate in a fresh way so that fans of these bands can come out and enjoy a fresh journey into music they hold dear.
Joining the group with Gould and Combe are 2 of Kansas City’s finest musicians:
Gould describes Brandon Draper as “The best drummer you’ve never heard of in your life”. Draper is a drummer, percussionist, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, DJ, producer, professor and guru within the spirit of sound and soul. He puts a fresh spin on all styles by adding excitable persona to every note.
Ben Hutchinson is a mainstay performer and teacher of piano, synthesis and vocal arts in Kansas City. He has been delving deep into the sounds of these artists for years and brings vibrant energy for the love of this music to the stage.
The Nephrok! Allstars
There are many elements that make this band a Funk Force to be reckoned with. Influences that range from Sly and The Family Stone, to James Brown, to Parliament Funkadelic, Prince, and a host of other Funk pioneers are deeply rooted in their sound while they still bring their creativity and originality to the surface. With Pete MacLean on Drums, Aaron Bellamy on Bass, and Van Martin on Guitar, you'd be hard-pressed to find a tighter rhythm section. With the masterful work of Amy Bellamy and Benjamin Zecker on Keyboards, a full horn section and one of the most inspiring and dynamic frontmen, Nephtaliem McCrary aka 'Nephrok!' and the undeniably soulful Kit Holliday on Vocals electrify audiences with their unmatchable energy, gritty old-school soulful style which harks back to the days of motown, doo-wop, and classic 70's soul, they they radiate their ultimate Funktitude EVERY time. It's widely known that The Nephrok! Allstars always bring a funky good time and experience that you'll never forget! It's one big party and everyone's invited.
Members of The Nephrok! Allstars also play with: The Sam Kininger Band, Cody Chesnutt, Martin Luther, House of Vibe Allstars feat. Chali 2na (of Jurassic 5), Chaka Khan, The Trama Unit, VGMB, The Sea Monsters, and Big Ben & The Royal Family amongst a variety of other projects.
