Share this event:

The new Madison, Wisconsin based horn band, RARE ELEMENT performs high-energy instrumental funk music in a truly unique manner.  The bands highly talented roster coupled with its creative and intricate arrangements make Rare Element a must-see act.

Chad Whittinghill (trumpet, flugelhorn) and Bryan Husk (tenor, baritone sax) first met in 2003 as members of the urban neo-soul band, VIBE SYNDICATE.  Unbeknownst to them, they would spend the next 16 years playing side by side at hundreds of shows with some of Wisconsins finest funk and blues bands.  For years, they honed their skilled working together with CLYDE STUBBLEFIELD's weekly Funky Monday shows.  Later, the two would team up with Hammond B-3 ace Jimmy Voegeli and his blues supergroup, THE JIMMYS

A while later, they crossed paths with Nat McIntosh (trombone) and the horn section was born.  Nat is a long-time member and composer for the phenomenal YOUNGBLOOD BRASS BAND. Over the years,  they shared a common goal to create  a band where this horn section could be pushed to it's limit.   Finally, in 2018, a roster of highly skilled musicians was assembled to make this goal a reality

They named that band...RARE ELEMENT.

Todd Phipps (keyboards, B3 organ) of THE BLUE OLIVES (and many other bands) was the first join.  Longtime Madison talent, Joe Niesen (guitar), also got in early.  Joe liked what he heard and recruited quietly infamous bassist, Brett Farrey, formerly withSMOKIN WITH SUPERMAN.

The critical piece of the puzzle was finding the right drummer to keep it funky.  Enter Mark Marsh, 2016 WAMI (Wisconsin Area Music Industry) Award Winning Drummer of the Year.  Mark brings relentless energy and deep groves to every performance.
