Southern California combo Thumpasaurus are five young men from the University of Southern California's Thornton School of Music. Vocalist and guitarist Lucas Tamaren, bassist Logan Kane, drummer Henry Was, keyboardist Paul Cornish, and saxophonist Henry Solomon had previously played in various bands or composed music ranging from jazz, folk, rock, and classical before deciding to dedicate a collective band to funk.
Analog funk with its driving power, fabulous bass runs and exact sax phrases is taken to a higher level by electronic keyboards, while vocals in falsetto or bass sing lively lyrics around love, life and flamingos.
The band has a sense of humor as also shown by their very funny videos. Live, it is clear how well their music is received when the musicians merely start to a track and the audience immediately dances along. In early summer Thumpasaurus will come to Berlin.
