Lubriphonic is one of the most exciting bands to emerge from Chicago in ages, incorporating elements of funk, hard soul, and rock into a live show that leaves audiences breathless. The band is the brainchild of guitarist/vocalist Giles Corey and drummer Rick King, and began with a residency at Chicago’s legendary Checkerboard Lounge. They recruited some of the best blues, funk, and rock musicians in the city for these raucous sessions. The result fuses roots music with explosive rock’n’roll and sensuous old-school dance music-- part Stones, part Funkadelic, and part Otis Redding.
Lubriphonic’s latest releases, “Soul Solution” (2008) and “Lubriphonic Live” (2008), have been featured in Jambase, Hittin’ The Note, and Relix Magazine (where the band was picked as an “On The Verge” artist and included in two of their CD samplers). Lubriphonic has been actively touring the Midwest and Rocky Mountain areas to rave reviews, as well as opening for acts as diverse as George Clinton, Derek Trucks, The Greyboy Allstars, and Buckwheat Zydeco.
With a starring cast of six musicians (including a full horn section), Lubriphonic has a busy tour schedule for the rest of 2009, with runs through the Midwest and West Coast in the summer, and jaunts to the East Coast and Southeast this fall. The band has been invited to play the High Sierra, Wakarusa & Telluride Blues and Brews music festivals. While on tour, Lubriphonic is also recording tracks for it’s next release, “The Gig Is On”
