Boom Boom Room Presents *FULLY-LOADED* - March tour through Colorado!

FULLY-LOADED is set to fire up Colorado on their first ever tour together March 15th through March 19th, 2006. Look-out all you Colorado people cause this band is so damn hot that it well may just melt the snow from the Colorado Rockies with these incendiary, groovin' dance-charged freakin' shows in March, 2006.

FULLY-LOADED is a Greasy Soul Funk all star band which features what are considered some of the hottest musicians in the Jam-Jazz-Funk universe.

This band was brought together by Cochemea Gastelum and Boom Boom Room (S.F.) for its first manifestation as a group in October 2005 for Boom Boom Room Presents Katrina Benefit Festival ("Frequinox Music Festival"). It is an evolved creation drawing its members and origin from the band 'MOTHERLODE' which had originally began in the mid nineties as part of a D.J. night at the original Casbah in San Diego.

What started out as an underground hang for local hipsters and vinyl junkies, quickly became a collective of young(some too young to drink),punk rock/funk musicians playing solos to 60's and 70's funk and boogaloo records. Soon after, Motherlode was formed as the house band, playing live versions of rare, classic soul and funk. Soon, they were packing the club and gaining recognition quickly. The members, at one time or another, included: Robert Walter, Zak Najor, Cochemea "Cheme" Gastelum, Chris Stillwell, Printz Board and Brian Jordan.

AND now... FULLY-LOADED is an evolution of MOTHERLODE which has quickly surfaced and made a huge splash with an ever escalating 'buzz' surrounding their recent shows in SF. They are necessarily the band to see if you are a fan of solid groove music and electric Funk Rhythms that don't stop comin' at ya! Without hesitation in dropping into its eclectic mix of fiery tunes by legendary forefathers of Funk and Soul-Jazz such as Dr. Lonnie Smith, Jimmy Smith and David Fathead Newman, FULLY-LOADED absolutely takes the crowd by its ears and propels the elated revelers into an awe induced trance. They brought the entire audience of over 600 revelers to its feet in a dance frenzy that lasted the entire show! To say that this band "nails it" is a massive understatement of accolades.

Blending Soul-Jazz, Funk and Afro-Beat with Rock and Fused with an endless onslaught of perfectly placed solos which the band trades effortlessly from one outstanding body-moving groove to the next, FULLY-LOADED has already earned top marks with the S.F. music community and has launched itself into the realm of the modern greats of these genre-blending bands such as GALACTIC, GREYBOY ALLSTARS and OZOMATLI.

This sensational group of musicians which hail under the name FULLY-LOADED dazzles its crowds with a blend of songs, musical styles and sounds uniquely their own. Hailing from such bands as GREYBOY ALLSTARS, ROBERT WALTERS 20th CONGRESS, BLACK-EYED PEAS, TJ KIRK, GARAJ MAHAL, The FUGEES and LETTUCE, the individual members of FULLY-LOADED are at the top of their game.

Collectively this band of musicians is a wonder to see and should you be so lucky to do so, it is adamantly advised that you catch this band now: As they are on a fast-track upwards towards stardom. "This is an Old-school Funky-Ass All-Pro Groovin' Unit together as FULLY-LOADED throwin' it down in the pocket so tight: you can't even begin to fathom the energy they emit from the stage with their music…but you certainly dare not miss it."
