New Orleans 4-Piece SOMETHING BURNING is a Progressive Funk Rock band that was started in late 2010, with the like-minded friendship between cellist/guitarist Daniel Andrews and guitarist/saxophonist PJ Dilorio. Both classically trained musicians and independent songwriters, the two formed the band early in their time at Loyola University New Orleans, with the goal of blending post-funk with groove-heavy reggae.

Since band’s inception, the rhythm section has been fluid. However in early 2011, they were joined by Ecuadorian drummer/percussionist Pepe Wright. Pepe constantly keeps the the band energy flowing, and also brings in strong influences of his own, particularly from alternative/progressive rock. The group was soon after joined by a Louisiana native, bassist Stephen Bohnstengel. Stephen (aka “The Stang”) studied Jazz Performance on Bass (also at Loyola), and does a lot of arranging and songwriting in his own right.

The group’s ability to blend subtle elements of jazz with the power of early hard rock culminates in the sound of Something Burning. Although it’s hard to describe this group’s eclectic, genre-defying sound without seeing a live performance, it is safe to say that you should expect to be taken on a musical journey that will leave your ears yearning for more.
