Fever in the Funkhouse, features members of The New Bohemians, Tripping Daisy, Polyphonic Spree and Café Antarsia Ensemble.
Fever In The Funkhouse, a Dallas Icon from the 90's Deep Ellum music scene, formed in 1988 from the suburbs of DeSoto and Waxahachie, Texas, just outside of Dallas.
Fever created post modern country rock mixed with elements of funk and jazz. Their dynamic and powerful live performances earned them a large cult fan base, numerous awards, including Best Act Overall 1991 Dallas Observer, and a development deal with Polygram/Mercury. Sharing the stage and scene with other Deep Ellum pioneers New Bohemians, Brave Combo and Ten Hands, Fever has created a music and soul that echoes from the past and into the future.
In 2008 Fever's fan base and local club owners from Club DaDa rallied the band back to performance for a New Year’s Eve concert that proved to be the first concert of many more to follow. The crowds were huge and the performances stood proud to honor Fever's reputation as one of the best live bands in country!
Original members, Lead Vocalist/Guitarist Nikos Brisco (Café Antarsia Ensemble) and Drummer Bryan Wakeland (The Polyphonic Spree/Tripping Daisy) have resurfaced the core Fever lineup stronger than ever with Lead Guitarist Kenny Withrow (The New Bohemians) and Bassist Dave Perez. Fever is further augmented with the addition of Keyboardist Ruth Margraff (C.A.E) and Vocalist Carol Turner (The Panic Choir, Big Circle TX).
Fever is currently performing shows in Texas and setting plans for National tours and recording.
