Deep Blue Sun
Featuring the soaring, versatile guitar work of Matt Lynn, the funky R&B vocals of bassist Buddha, John's driving keyboards and a razor sharp rhythm section -- the idea of this band is to take swampy funk and southern soul, and infuse it with west coast psychedelia, tight turns, dynamics and a good dose of improv. And keep the crowd moving the whole time.
Their intense dedication to song-craft, melody, harmonies and stylistic stretches is what sets Deep Blue Sun apart. The sound continues to move, from New Orleans to San Francisco; from London to Kingston; from deep, churning funk and jazz to southern-fried chicken pickin'. It works because each member of Deep Blue Sun knows that music is universal, and they each know their role in achieving the ultimate musical goal: The Get Down!
Deep Blue Sun plays major clubs, theatres, festivals and events throughout the southeast, including the Variety Playhouse, Georgia Theatre, Smith's Olde Bar, Gottrocks, Magnolia Fest, Harvestfest, Chattanooga Riverbend Fest, and many more. Along the way they've shared the stage with the Derek Trucks Band, Dumpstaphunk, Jimmy Herring, Warren Haynes, Karl Denson, Bob Weir, Little Feat, The Subdudes, The Radiators and Col. Bruce Hampton to name a few.
