Edgy, adventurous ever-evolving psychedelic rock fusion sonics defines the Bride Of Chaotica live experience. Bride Of Chaotica's live performances exquisitely captures their intricate, vividly cinematic, and thoroughly modern sound informed by the improvisational spirit of the jazz and rock champions of the late 20th century.Their new debut CD "Bamboo Transistor" is available from CD Baby, iTunes, Pandora and a host of online music distribution companies.

Founded in September of 2008 by studio bassist Robert "Red" Redmond with drummer Tim Tuthill and guitarist/arranger Bill Bechtel, Bride Of Chaotica adopted their name from an episode of 'Star Trek Voyager' and played their first show on New Years Day 2009 at Yeoman's Road Pub on Davis Island near downtown Tampa. Since then Bride Of Chaotica has wowed crowds at the Orange Blossom Jamboree concerts (2010,2011,2012) in Brooksville, FL, the annual Earth Day concert hosted by the Sierra Club at Tampa's Lowry Park and University of South Florida Botanical Gardens, and the Tampa Tribune's Friday Extra Concert series at the new Curtis Hixon park in downtown Tampa. Bride Of Chaotica has also captivated appreciative audiences at a diverse array of clubs across the west coast of Florida including the Dunedin Brewing Company, The Hub Bar in Tampa, the Orlando Brewing Company, the Amsterdam in St Petersburg, north Tampa's Skipper's Smokehouse, and the Manhattan in south Tampa, performing spirited live renditions of tracks from their CDs and reimagined versions of classic rock hits from artists ranging from The Beatles to Roxy Music.

"Bride Of Chaotica release ambi-sonic jazz fusion debut album Bamboo Transistor"
June 24, 2012 / Tampa, FL :

"Back in the day albums like John Coltrane's "Impressions" were recorded as live performances, capturing a unique and fleeting moment in time. We decided to record Bride Of Chaotica's debut in the same way, only using the latest digital recording technology instead of the state-of-the-art 1960 Ampex suitcase tape recorders.." states guitarist/arranger/producer Bill Bechtel.

On a blisteringly hot Saturday afternoon late last year the members of Tampa Bay's renegade psychedelic rock trio Bride Of Chaotica convened at Pro Star Studios in St.Petersburg to record their first album live in the studio with engineer Jody Grey. Comprised of ten Bride Of Chaotica tracks and an aggressive take on the Bacharach/David classic "The Look Of Love" and their reimagined arrangement of The Beatle's track "Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)" the finished project, titled "Bamboo Transistor", was mastered at Redroom Recorders in Tampa by engineer Mark Prator and captures the zeitgeist of the band beautifully, and serves as a compelling introduction to the Bride Of Chaotica experience.
