ABOUT THE ARTISTS…

Cousin Fungus    http://www.cousinfungus.com/

Cousin Fungus is an original jam/rock band whose influences shine through their songwriting and live performances.  From jazz to bluegrass to reggae to the blues, CF dances their way through their diverse library of psychedelic, progressive compositions and renditions of classic tracks from the masters with energetic improvisation, passionate vocals, and catchy hooks played with precision and fervor.

The band is comprised of three brothers and a longtime friend. These four talents merge together, sometimes seamlessly in a smooth groove, sometimes soaring to explode in a climax, but always taking the crowd on a trip.

Starting in the mid 90’s as Stash, they were the preeminent Phish cover band of the day, drawing in rabid fans to get their fix of the Vermont foursome.  As the millennium turned, Stash matured into their own skin as Cousin Fungus, began building their original repertoire, and were one of the trailblazers of the jam band genre from which many of the contemporaries they played alongside emerged.

3rd Album release OCT14 2019 Called (SUNSHINE SOUL)

Sunshine Soul is Chris Pepe's third EP in 2 years. With some of the original musicians Chris used on his 1st (2) albums and some new studio players Chris was able to capture the sound, the structure & arrangements he and the rest of the group were looking for.
This album is a bit heavier than the last 2 Ep' s, structurally Chris talent really shines not only musically but vocally as Chris really pushes himself and his voice to new heights. Led Zeppelin, RHCP, Pearl Jam, & Soundgarden being a tremendous influence on Chris and his songwriting is shown on the title track Sunshine Soul & Revolution. The song Fear, starts off with a back beat mountains type acoustic then quickly into a Pop-Rock genre. Rock N' roll Star sounds like Bad Company could have done this in the late 70's. The song Waste of Time a straight forward punk-like song is tight and right like a nicely tied bow, and to the point.
