Mr Lewis and The Funeral Five
With Delirium Tremendous, their long awaited follow up to their debut record, Murder, And The Art Of The Dance, Mr. Lewis & The Funeral 5 are set to make quite the racket in 2011 like sailors come to port after a long trip at sea.
Roughly formed in 2004, they've settled into the line up of Gregory Lewis as vocalist/guitarist, James Sheeran on the drums, Rob Metcalfe on guitar and percussion, Danny "Dervish" Smith on bass, Phil Howard on keyboard and percussion and Jimmy Bonura on saxophone. Together, they will take their own brand of barrel house cabaret rock to the masses with vim and vigor throughout the next year.
"(Mr.) Lewis composes with cinematic sweep, taking a confident, playful, mix-and-match approach to genre. Just try to resist a devil that plays punk rock with a dash of tango."- Austin Music Magazine

"Mr. Lewis & the Funeral Five's polka/lounge/murder ballads stung like Molotov cocktails thrown through the window of a church." -Audra Schroeder, Austin Chronicle
