Breakfast_2004-11-26_8513.jpg

Fresh off their Jammy win for “Best New Groove†of 2004, THE BREAKFAST are poised to bring their singular brand of music to a much wider audience. THE BREAKFAST are set to release their long awaited new studio album and follow-up to last year's BONA FIDE in February 2005. The new album, titled REAL RADIO , features harder edged driving funk tunes and blazing musicianship from guitarist Tim Palmieri, bassist Ron Spears, Jordan Giangreco on keys and drummer Adrian Tramontano. Guest appearances on REAL RADIO include the Addison Groove horns, Jen Hartswick and guitarist Jeff Pevar.

The bands ability to send an audience into a frenzy at festivals like High Sierra, The Adirondack Mountain Music Fest, Berkshire Mountain Music Fest, and many more major festivals around the country as well as a guest appearance at BONNAROO #1, have set the stage for magical 2005.

THE BREAKFAST had seemed destined for great things from the moment the four self-taught musicians first came together in 1998 in their native East Haven, CT.

Their first two years as a band were spent honing THE BREAKFAST sound -- an aural cornucopia that combines the best elements of the artists the band members most admire: the groove-burning of P-Funk, the masterful precision of Mahavishnu Orchestra, the sonic reverie of Phish and the Grateful Dead, the adventurousness of Frank Zappa and the take-no-prisoners rock and funk of Led Zeppelin and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Things really started clicking for THE BREAKFAST in 2000, when four tracks from their self-titled, self-produced independent release album were featured on the MTV series, Undressed . In August of 2000 the band turned in a memorable 5 1/2-hour show at the 2000 Woodstock reunion on Yasgur's Farm.

That year also saw the group begin its career as road warriors. In 2000-2001, THE BREAKFAST played before enthusiastic audiences throughout New England, the mid-Atlantic region and the South. The group also has appeared at festivals and on stages with the likes of funk legend Bernie Worrell, The Disco Biscuits, Soulive, Steve Kimock, Seth Yacovone, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, Leftover Salmon, Victor Wooten, Dark Star Orchestra, Umphrey's Mcgee, Particle, Robbie Kreiger of the Doors, Jeff Pevar, Max Creek and Country Joe to name but a few. At every stop, music lovers -- Baby Boomers and Gen-Xers alike -- have found THE BREAKFAST to be a group like none they have ever heard.

DEUCE was released nationally in 2001 and garnered rave reviews. In addition to the insistence by Revolving Door magazine that PSYCHEDELIC BREAKFAST "deserves a huge national audience," Relix was quoted as saying “Expect Big Things†and PB was featured in two separate issues in 2002. Jambase called PB “The future of Rock-n-Roll†and has been instrumental in the bands West Coast development. PB has received critical acclaim in publications like Drum Magazine , Entertainment Weekly , Relix, Playboy , Vintage Guitar Magazine and many others.

2002 and 2003 saw THE BREAKFAST develop increasingly strong markets in the West and Mid Atlantic regions. They toured the country 3 times in 2003 to promote their third release, BONA FIDE . The album is comprised of 11 tracks recorded live at a sold out Pearl St. nightclub in Northampton, MA in September 2002. The recording features a scorching version of the Allman Brothers classic “Hot `Lanta†which features good friend and VT native, Seth Yacovone on accompanying guitar.

I was also there at the BREAKFAST's LEE's Palace show. For some reason the music was so loud, there never appeared to be much dynamics in their set, I believe it's because of the sound guy at LEE's. The rock mentality there is "keep it loud, that way people will drink more." Since the Gypsy is a smaller room, the band will have more control on their sound, as judging by their newest CD they are going strong.

You just described him as a hubba smoking wookie. I wouldn't take that so lightly afro-poppa.
