Out of their hometown of Nashville, TN- Deep Fried 5 has been making funky, soulful music exploding with groove and attitude since 2008 & haven't looked back since. With original tracks, reminiscent of 60s and 70s funk and soul, the music takes you back to when it was pure… "These dudes have moved to the top of the chart in our heart with a sound that finds the more commercial aspects of late-’70s soul — you know, when it was bumping uglies with the beast that was about to become disco." - Sean Maloney of the Nashville Scene. The group continues to grow and expand, pushing the envelope of a new progressive funk sound that has undertones of jazz, rock, soul, r&b, and blues; winning the affection of all different genres of music fans. In late 2009, they began working on their first album: a 14-track, self-produced record at the Groove Compound Recording Studios in Spring Hill, TN. After releasing the album "Saturday Night Funk, Sunday Morning Soul", the band began rapidly building up a funky fan base from the Southeast to the Midwest, spreading the "Deep Fried' sound. The band has been support for bands such as; Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, Orgone, The New Mastersounds and many more. And has been apart of major festivals like Dexfest 2010 and 2011, Riverbend Music Festival in 2011, Alexander City Jazz Festival in 2011, Bele Chere in 2011, River and Spires Music Festival in 2012 and Family Fall Roots Festival 2011 and 2012. As of late, the band has been working up their next album entitled “Right Around the Corner” which is being recorded at G.E.D Soul Recording Studios in East Nashville. The 10-track album will be ready to release in the summer of 2013 followed by a strong tour in hopes to gain new fans in newer markets.
