Lounge on Fire is a steel cut, blackened and peppered, cock-eyed, funk-trunked, hip-dipped flat-on-your-back pants-off-dance-off machine, also known as a sexadelic freak funk band.

Lecherously charged spitfire vocals from singer and guitarist Nathan Norton are backed by co-founder Josh Gilmore’s precision finger-funk bass and Wade Ronsse’s pulsing disco-rock drums. Alan Schwaderer’s dexterously ripping keyboard, guitar, and accordion joins an indomitable horn trio of Seth Hoffman on trumpet, Matt Patterson on saxophone, and Kevan Ash on trombone to create a cabaret that offers a dance party for the dubious listener and a mélange of musical dynamics for those ambitious to engage beyond the beat.

Combining at times elements of funk, rock, jazz, latin, psychedelia, and hip hop, Lounge on Fire explores the spectrum of eclecticism, drawing from such influences as Frank Zappa, Beck, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Talking Heads, and Led Zeppelin. The vigorous live performances channel the paisley-shirted members’ passion for making people move, often with synchronized choruses of howls, the horns running into the crowd to provide an intimate yet vociferous experience for the crowd, and the stage tremoring from the gyrations of the ensemble itself.
