Funky Chemist is an organ trio that fuses funky grooves with scorching guitar to add a strand of psychedelic rock into what would otherwise be categorized as a jazz act. Inspired by the music heard in New Orleans at Jazzfest and on Frenchman Street, the influence of Stanton Moore Trio and Anders Osborne is apparent.
The band features Jeno Somlai on Hammond Organ, Daniel Nathan on Guitar (and Flute), and Andy Blochowiak on Drums. The members have a lengthy resume and continue to be very active in other projects nationally and internationally. Daniel currently tours with the Guns N' Roses tribute Nightrain International and has recently performed in Ecuador, Guatemala, Southwest Asia, and the Dominican Republic. Jeno has toured North America with various acts, and can currently be seen with The Donna Woodall Group, La Chazz (Chicago Jazz Fest), Abraxas, Dan Dance, Wade Fernandez, Steve Cohen and Luis Diaz. Jeno released the “Let it Go” full length album with Jeno Somlai Sextet, a Latin Jazz group influenced by a variety of styles in the Afro-Cuban Latin genres. Andy has a Bachelor’s of Music Degree from UW-Milwaukee, and has performed for venerable dignitaries such as Former President George W. Bush, Governor Scott Walker (at the Governor's Mansion), Governor Jim Doyle, and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett.
Funky Chemist has recently had notable performances at Summerfest, Bay View Jazz Fest, and is currently in the studio recording their next release.
