The Kate Dunphy Band is a piano driven pop/rock jam band out of Hartford, CT. The band performs all original music by Kate Dunphy. Kate's music is brought to life by the multi-talented band members she employs. They blend many influences and genres into their own unique style of music that is difficult to throw into one category. The band is known for their catchy songs, tasteful jamming, tight arrangements and amazing musicianship. Originally from Portland Maine, Kate is one of the only jam-oriented female band leaders in the country. Her live show blends rock, jazz, funk, folk, and latin music featuring explosive jams and solos that always leave the crowd begging for more.

Kate’s band consists of Steve Quam on bass, Steve Elmy on Guitar, Jason Anick on Electric Violin and Rob Griffith on Drums. The band has performed at many reputable venues around the northeast including: The Bitter End in New York City, The Grape Street Pub in Philadelphia, The Webster Theatre and Sully’s Pub in Hartford, as well as frequent performances at the University of Hartford including Spring Fling 2006 where they opened for hip-hop star Method Man.

The band independently released their debut CD “Life at the Speed of Sound,” in March of 2005. The record was well-received and left their fans eager to see what they would come up with next. The band re-entered the studio at the beginning of 2006 to record an album that better represents their true sound. The result is their new EP "Outside Up & Inside Down." This record shows the bands versatility and how they can perform many styles authentically, but still keep their original signature within the music. “Outside Up & Inside Down” will be on sale at the end of May. In the meantime, the band is booking their fall 2006 tour which will include stops in many cities and college campuses.
