Formed from deep within the Westsound Union, Rippin Chicken plays a greasy brand of funky, bugaloo and soul jazz, executed with creative ease by 3 funky brothers from different mothers who LOVE to play together. After performing and recording together for the better part of a decade in groups such as, The Funk Revolution, The Lucky Mystery Now Orchestra, and The Bucks (all under the direction of the great Lucky Brown), Rippin Chicken presents this power-house rhythm section as the center of attention, playing the music they wanna, in a style that is all their own. “A soul-food Organ trio gone Rippin”

Plutons is led by Chris Phillips (Portland's West Side Blues Assoc. "Keyboardist of the Year") and was noted as "A super funk monster with the soul of the old and the groove from the new" - Portland Mercury and the Willamette Week said - "Tapping into the world of Jack McDuff, Lonnie Smith, and Billy Martin/Wil Blades, Plutons fits right in."
After working to put together the successful 10-piece funk/soul outfit Philly's Phunkestra recently Chris has spent time with new funk monster the Roseland Hunters and shared stages with groups such as Dumpstaphunk, Rebirth Brass Band, Fitz and the Tantrums, The Wailers, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Galactic and more!
