Kung Fu: New Band The Breakfast/RAQ & Others

Kung Fu: “It’s Lethal Funk”

Tim Palmieri
Some of today’s most innovative musical minds – who have played with the likes of John Scofield, Warren Haynes, Dave Matthews Band, The Breakfast and RAQ – will be pushing the boundaries of improvisation each week at Stella Blues in New Haven, CT.

Calling themselves Kung Fu, this new super group consists of Tim Palmieri (The Breakfast/guitar), Todd Stoops (RAQ/keys), Kris Jensen (sax), David Livolsi (bass) and Adrian Tramontano (The Breakfast/drums).

“Everyone is a monster,” says Palmieri, who is a regular in the New Haven music scene. “This music is going to be funky, mature and powerful.”

Consider it the martial arts of the music world, if you will.

“It’s lethal funk,” continues Palmieri. “It’s music smart and strong enough to defend one’s self, or art’s self. I love this music.”

Kung Fu will be playing a mix of covers, improvisations and eventually will be writing original material as well.
