The Bomb Squad, interestingly enough, was formed on the stage at NYC's Irving Plaza in March 2001. Ian McHugh (lead guitar), was offered the opening spot through a friend of his that was in the headlining band. "I accepted the gig but wasn't sure who I was going to play with, I knew the venue would be packed, so I had to act quickly because the gig was the following night." McHugh recruited star vocalist Jen Durkin (former Deep Banana Blackout, and Bernie Worrell vocalist) to sing, and nailed down the rhythm section and horn players from his own band EMCQ. "Over the phone we hashed out a set list featuring some EMCQ originals, and a couple funk classics from James Brown and Tower of Power." The gig went over amazingly in front of the sell out crowd and the Bomb Squad was born.

Since March 2001, The Bomb Squad has played steady gigs throughout the Northeast US, and has been concentrating on writing new material. Their music is hard hitting funk with touches of r&b, jazz, Latin, and rock.

The Bomb Squad is Jen Durkin (lead vocals), Ian McHugh (guitar), Brad Mason (Trumpet), Mike Raskin (Tenor Sax), Mark Traggesser (Bari Sax), and Stu Brooks (bass).
