Biography

         Out of their hometown of Nashville, TN- Deep Fried 5 has been making funky, soulful music exploding with groove and attitude since 2008 & haven't looked back since.  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. In late 2009, they began working on their first album: a 14-track, self-produced record at 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.  

Call us what you want...some call us "funk".

The Deep Fried Five have been direct support with touring acts such as Orgone, The New Mastersounds, Dumpstaphunk, Dopapod, The Pimps Of Joytime, Snarky Puppy, Monophonics, Big Sam's Funky Nation, The Rebirth Brass Band, Toubab Krewe, The Beach Boys, Nappy Roots, Here Come The Mummies, Wet Willy, Terrance Simien & The Zydeco Experience, The Delta Saints, The Werks, Zach Deputy, Cherub, The Heavy Pets, Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band, Space Capone, DeRobert & The Half-Truths, DJ Kidsmeal, DJ Wick-It, & many more.

...A mix of bumpin' bass lines, staccato wah pedal rhythm guitar, sultry synth & organ lines, pocket drums, & golden, soulful vocals with an over the top, belting lead guitar, these dudes have a high energy of groove & they jam to the max to keep your heart pumpin & body movin'!
 

As of late, the band has been working up their next album entitled Right Around the Corner which is being recorded at G.E.D Soul Recording Studios in East Nashville.  The 10-track album will be ready to release in the Spring of 2014 followed by a strong tour in hopes to gain new fans in newer markets.

VS1
Cookin it up, bubblin in the pan
smells so good, you don't understand
got the gravy, baked the beans
marinated if you know what i mean
spill the sauce, don't make a mess
shake and bake that chicken breast
I talked to crispy, he put me in the mood
now i'm cravin' to get that soul food

CH
That soul food was right on time
That soul food was right on time
That soul food was right on time
That soul food baby!

VS2
mouth is watering wanna stuff my face
slow it down this ain't no race
enjoy the people appreciate
when it hits the table, it's not to late
the ovens hot, startin to sweat
it's almost done, but it ain't done yet
no time talk, gotta bite to chew
now i'm cravin, to get that soul food

CH
That soul food was right on time
That soul food was right on time
That soul food was right on time
That soul food baby!

That soul food baby!
That soul food baby!

lyrics by E. Koslosky

VS 1
Heard that you been lookin for a good time
I can help you out if thats the case
If your goal is getting loose tonight

You say its been too long since you've had some fun
Tell me now can this be true
For every problem, there's a solution

VS 2
You can kick it back on the sofa
or you can shake it down on the floor
there's only one rule that applies here
leave your stress and worry at the door
Bring all your best friends along with you
the more the merrier is what they say
bring all your supplies
the party's on the rise
follow us and we'll show you the way

CH
We gone bring ya down to the funk house
We gone bring ya down to the funk house
We gone bring ya down to the funk house
We gone bring ya down to the funk house

Hide Away
lyrics by J. Martin

VS1
Tell me that I'm all that your wanting
I promise that I won't hold back
I've been looking out for your safety
I'm the one you want to have
Wont you tickle on my side and then take hold
Spin me round and squeeze me tight
I am here for you can we just groove?
I'm not waiting here all night

CH
Don't you go and hideaway
I need you here beside me
Don't you go and hideaway
I need you here beside me

VS 2
Tell me that the feeling is right
I'll be yours to just walk on
I've been saying all of my life
I'd take a trip up to the north
Scared to know that this is the truth
Probably not I look away
I am here for you can we just groove?
I'm not waiting here all night

CH
Don't you go and hideaway
I need you here beside me
Don't you go and hideaway
I need you here beside me

CH
Don't you go and hideaway
I need you here beside me
Don't you go and hideaway
I need you here beside me

Give it Up - The Deep Fried 5
Lyrics - A.Dilley, J. Martin, G. Whitlow

VS1

I've given you enough space to decide it for yourself
You need to get with the program, you know I'm something else
The thought you don't love this, well it's bogus in itself
We can do this together, we just got to give it up

CH
Ain't got nothin' but love and I wanna give you some
Ain't got nothin' but love and I wanna give you some
I wanna give you some

VS2
You've got some extra money? You've got to give it up
You've got some extra lovin' ahh now, you've got to give it up
You've been talking and talking and talking you've got to give it up
You've got something to say here, you've got to give up

CH
Ain't got nothin' but love and I wanna give you some
Ain't got nothin' but love and I wanna give you some
I wanna give you some

VS3
I've given you enough space to decide it for your self
You need to get with the program, you know I'm something else
The thought you don't love this, well it's bogus in itself
We can do this together, we just got to give it got to got to got
you've got to give it up
