Funky Chemist Header

Funky Chemist is an organ trio that fuses funky grooves with heavy guitar and adds a strand of psychedelic rock into what would otherwise be categorized as a jazz act. The music is most influenced by Stanton Moore Trio, Soulive and Dr. Lonnie Smith.

The band features Jeno Somlai on Hammond Organ, Daniel Nathan on Guitar (and Flute), and Andy Blochowiak on Drums. Jeno has toured North America with various acts, and can currently be seen with The Donna Woodall Group, La Chazz (Chicago Jazz Fest), Abraxas, Dan Dance, Wade Fernandez, Steve Cohen and Luis Diaz. Daniel currently tours with the Guns N' Roses tribute Nightrain International and has recently performed in Ecuador, Guatemala, Southwest Asia, and the Dominican Republic. Andy has a Bachelorís of Music Degree from UW-Milwaukee, performs frequently at corporate gigs, and works in music education.

Studio PicFunky Chemist has recently had notable performances at Summerfest, Bay View Jazz Fest, and has just finished recording their first studio release. The band recorded with Ric Probst at Tanner-Monagle and the eight track effort clocks in at just under 38 minutes. Gary Tanin at Daystorm mastered the album and the band is currently working on the promotional gameplan for the release.
