“FROM THE SPOTLIGHT TO THE MORNING LIGHT, THE DEEP FRIED 5 WILL EXPLODE YOUR MIND AND FUNK YOU HIGHER THAN CLOUD NINE WITH DYNAMIC DYNAMITE SOUL!”

Out of their hometown of Nashville, TN- Deep Fried 5 makes funky, soulful music exploding with groove and attitude. 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. Their first release is a 14-track, self-produced collection of songs recorded out of 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, Zach Deputy, Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band and many more. And has been apart of major music festivals like Riverbend, Alexander City Jazz Festival, Bele Chere, River and Spires Music Festival, Terrapin Hill, Family Roots.

The second release is an album entitled “Right Around the Corner” which was recorded at G.E.D Soul Recording Studios in East Nashville. The 10-track album features horn arrangements by legendary Jim Horn, who has played with countless recording artists since the 70’s and virtuoso local Nashville talent and friend Chris West, who is one of the most in-demand funk horn players in our town.

The band is currently working on the third release with hopes to bring it to you in 2017. Stay funky.
