August 1 ~ Fo/Mo/Deep (Columbus, OH)
fo/mo/deep = An Eclectic Groove Oriented – Funky Jazz Collective.
Best known for their sizzling live performances, the fo/mo/deep groove is rooted in the experimental school of the 70s…a time when jazz, soul and funk were one and the same. Seeking to defy the ordinary, this diverse collective of seasoned pros keeps things stirred up with unpredictable energy that moves. The music harkens back to the days when super groups hypnotized the world with bass driven ensembles and a full-bodied sound that reigned supreme. fo/mo/deep plays music like it’s meant to be…hot, incalculable and emotionally satisfying and fun for all ages.
“A Beautiful Bang” (June 2012) is the sophomore CD release for fo/mo/deep. Their first CD, “Eclecticism,” (August 2010) was received with rave reviews. Rob Young of The Urban Flux declared, “Their unique groove uncoil with a twist of eclectic jazz/funk rhythms that’s not heard often enough these days.” Formed back 2007 by Bassist/Bandleader, Ron “Fatkat” Holmes, Jr., they are known for their intelligently energetic and unpredictable shows, their live appearances supporting the CD release created a formidable reputation for this funk-infused band.
