If P-Funk and Zappa had a lovechild, it would be Dr. Slothclaw. The PA-based freak funk phenom has been blowing up the live music scene with their funky mix of blues, psychedelic and jam since 2006. While the band points to such bands as Turkuaz, Lettuce, Pink Floyd, and Primus as inspiration for their cross-genre sound, they find their home in the traditions of funk and blues. Balancing surprising improvisations with memorable melodies, the bands music features an eclectic range of sounds and influences, including world percussion, synth leads, exploratory soundscapes, bass breakdowns, and spot-on vocal harmonies. Known for their high energy shows and catchy, inventive lyrics, a Dr. Slothclaw show will not only inspire you to join-in on their legendary mass-audience sing-alongs, but will leave you pumping with adrenaline.
Awarded both Indie Jam Band of the Year (2012) and Indie Funk Band of the Year (2014) by
the Tri-State Indie organization out of Philadelphia, PA, Dr. Slothclaw was recently named one of Phillys top 10 funk acts. On festival stages and in clubs alike, the band has shared the stage with a slew of big name acts, including: Dumpstaphunk, Zach Deputy, Twiddle, The McLovins, Ozric Tentacles (UK), Turkuaz, Cornmeal, Papa Mali, Golden Gate Wingmen, Mark Karan, Cabinet, Keller Williams, Kung-Fu, The Heavy Pets, Mickey Hart Band, Particle, New Riders of the Purple Sage, The Pimps of Joytime, Project Object, Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds, Consider the Source, Dangermuffin, Rubblebucket, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, The Recipe, Ekoostik Hookah, to name a few.
With two previously self-released albums under their belt, including Whats That Buzzing Noise? (2012), Big Mother Nasty (2015), Dr. Slothclaw recently released their third album,
Deep Space Boogie, on August 25, 2016. Partially funded by fans through a Go-Fund Me campaign, Deep Space Boogie was recorded at Assorted Studios in York, PA in February of 2016. Capturing the energy of the bands fun and entertaining live shows, Deep Space Boogie
feels like a groovy, psychedelic dance party flying through deep space, with a couple weird pit
stops along the way. While the title track is a play on classic P-Funk ideology, songs like Gone
Gold highlight the bluesier side of the bands sound. Deep Space Boogie also features songs like Spaghetti Man and Half Pint, whose lyrics play on the funny and somewhat absurd side of love and attraction. With sometimes off the wall lyrics and an eclectic mix of musical styles,
Deep Space Boogie truly delivers something different that will get you moving. Characterized by a highly contagious love of playing together, Dr. Slothclaw shows keeps fans dancing all night long, engaging the audience in the funky party theyre having on stage. The members of the 5 piece funk powerhouse, including Adam Golihew (guitar/keys/vocals), Dylan
Kreiger (guitar/vocals), Garry Slick (bass), Joshua Stoner (drums) and Brett Noel
(percussion/vocals), always do their own thing, never failing to deliver a rousing good time.
With the philosophy that we are all freaks, we are all funky, you can bet that a night with the
Doctor will be unforgettable.
