Guitarist Ross Brown crafts his own brand of original instrumental aggressive groove fusion. It is a unique blend of Jazz, Funk, Latin and Rock with emphasis on groove and improvisation. Most of Rossâ€™ pieces are written to feature the improvisation of the players.
The band explores many realms of music: ambient avant-garde to jazzy groove to funk to latin to aggressive progressive rock fusion. The original repertoire is instrumental and high-energy. The band performs with varying configurations.
Initially formed as a class project, Chaos Thompson was founded by Rory Flynn and Brad Mastrangelo during their enrollment at Millersville University of Pennsylvania. The two set out to form a band that was steeped in jazz and funk tradition, but wasn't afraid to do their own thing. They started the band and, after several changes in personnel, became the group that exists today. Though often labeling themselves as a funk band, Chaos' sound ventures into various musical territories including rock, blues, fusion, jazz, hip-hop, and world music.
