The best kept secret in music

Relix says in an article called “ARTISTS ON THE VERGE: The band members have an almost telepathic interaction and are not afraid to experiment. Expect big things.”

The Second Annual New Artist Special... Beyond the Verge

Psychedelic Breakfast

The Recipe: Hyperspeed musical telepathy. This hungry young Connecticut quartet blazes through Zappa and Phish-esque tension and release jams for most of its show. The interplay between virtuoso guitarist Tim Palmieri and spastic drummer Adrian Tramontano is worth the price of admission alone. Palmieri may be the most technically accomplished player on the scene these days. If he can mature into a more patient soloist, the band could take it to the next level.

"The perfect time machine for us old fogeys to recall our college days in the '70s. Psychedelic Breakfast faithfully serves up a style I thought had pretty much dried up, done with enough smarts and integrity to avoid sounding dried out." - Neil Tesser, author, The PLAYBOY Guide To Jazz
- PLAYBOY


"this band cooks. Palmieri is as good a guitar player as you'll run across in the rock idiom"
Vintage Guitar Magazine - Aug 2003 - Vintage Guitar Magazine


“Some of the tastiest sounds the ears could ingest. ... Buy Deuce and never go hungry again.” - The Soundboard “As long as the band continues to take the best of the old music and put a fresh spin on it like they do on Deuce, big things are sure to come.” - Mountain Times - Mountain Times


“Organic and outlandish, Deuce is the work of a young band with the right ideas. The jamming is tight, the ideas enormous and the intentions honest. Psychedelic Breakfast offers the listener a world filled with skyballs and saxscrapers. Deuce, by Psychedelic Breakfast, is grand.” - Jambands.com - Jambands.com


Phish fans aren't going to want to miss this new entry on the jam band circuit." - LA Times - LA Times

Bio

Bring your appetite! The Breakfast (formerly Psychedelic Breakfast) have arrived.

2004 Jammy Award Winners! “Best New Groove” Along side other winners like Steve Winwood, Grateful Dead, SCI, Phish, Gov't Mule and moe, the breakfast have taken home the Jammy award for the best new artist of 2004.

Entering 2004, The BREAKFAST (Psychedelic Breakfast) are poised to bring their singular brand of music to a much wider audience. In addition to delivering the message in person to all corners of the country, The BREAKFAST will greet their fans at 2004's favorite festivals and clubs on the heels of their 3 rd album BONA FIDE! From the 2004 Woodstock Reunion to Baja Bash in La Jolla, CA, the Breakfast have a whirlwind summer in store!

A coveted spot in the spring of 2002 SXSW Conferences + Festivals in Austin, Texas combined with the bands ability to send an audience into a frenzy at festivals like High Sierra, The Adirondack Mountain Music Fest, Berkshire Mountain Music Fest , and many more major festival around the country as well as guest appearances on little shin digs like BONNAROO #1, have set the stage for magical 2004 .. You'll have to join us for the rest of the story.

Impressive? Yes. Surprising? Not at all. PSYCHEDELIC BREAKFAST had seemed destined for great things from the moment the four self-taught musicians first came together in 1998 in their native East Haven, Conn.

Their first two years as a band were spent honing the BREAKFAST sound -- an aural cornucopia that combines the best elements of the artists the band members most admire: the groove-burning of P-Funk, the masterful precision of Mahavishnu Orchestra, the sonic reverie of Phish and the Grateful Dead, the adventurousness of Frank Zappa and the take-no-prisoners rock and funk of Led Zeppelin and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Things really started clicking for the BREAKFAST in 2000, when four tracks from their self-titled, self-produced independent release album were featured on the MTV series, Undressed. That same year saw the band turn in a memorable 5 1/2-hour show at the 2000 Woodstock reunion on Yasgur's Farm.

That year also saw the group begin its career as road warriors of the first rank: In 2000, 2001,PSYCHEDELIC BREAKFAST played before enthusiastic audiences throughout New England, the mid-Atlantic region and the South. Among the gigs were such events as Massachusetts' Berkshire Mountain Music Festival, Hempstock VIII in Maine and the Philadelphia Music Conference. The group also has appeared at festivals and on stages with the likes Sonic Youth, moe, My Morning Jacket, The Disco Biscuits, Soulive, Steve Kimock, Seth Yacovone, Brian Jordan and KDTU, Leftover Salmon, Victor Wooten, Dark Star Orchestra, Umphrey's Mcgee, Particle, Robbie Kreiger of the Doors, The Big Wu, Jeff Pevar, Max Creek and Country Joe to name but a few. At every stop, music lovers -- Baby Boomers and Gen-Xers alike -- have found the Breakfast to be a group like none other they have ever heard.

The hits kept coming in 2001: The Sonance deal was followed by the national release of DEUCE, through Select-O-Hits distribution. As an independent effort, DEUCE had already garnered rave reviews. In addition to the insistence by Revolving Door magazine that PSYCHEDELIC BREAKFAST "deserves a huge national audience." Relix was quoted as saying “Expect Big Things” and PB was featured in two separate issues in 02'. Jambase called PB “The future of Rock-n-Roll” and has been instrumental in the bands West Coast development. PB have received critical acclaim in publications like Drum Magazine, Entertainment Weekly, Relix, Playboy, Vintage Guitar Magazine and many others.

2002 and 2003 saw the Breakfast develop increasingly strong markets in the West and Mid Atlantic regions. They traveled the country 3 times in 2003 to promote their third release, Bona Fide. BONA FIDE is comprised of 11 tracks recorded live at a sold out Pearl St nightclub in MASS. In September of 2002. Mixed and mastered at Horizon Studios, the recording features a scorching version of the Allman Brothers classic Hot Lanta which features good friend and VT native, Seth Yacovone on accompanying guitar.

Relentless touring and truly mind expanding rock-n-roll will be the key to this bands future. They bring “it” and they bring it hard! Keep your eyes on these boys. PB ain't your typical jamband!
