Sunfire Pleasure


Recommended Posts

Sunfire Pleasure have a style that is very difficult to label. I was shocked and amazed :: the first time I heard them a couple years ago. The were great then and now they are awesome! This is a band that is going places. :rockon: They are based in San Francisco, California.

I copied the following info from their website. Sunfire Pleasure

One of San Francisco's most exciting and unique independent bands, Sunfire Pleasure wows fans, critics and fellow musicians with its electrifying stage presence, thrilling mix of solid original songs, and awe-inspiring improvisations that fuse rock, funk and jazz. They are a thrilling mix of rock, funk and jazz.

Guitarist Noah Reid, flautist Jason "Hawk" West and singer-songwriter Emily Pitcher planted the seeds of Sunfire Pleasure in Chicago before relocating to San Francisco, where they recruited bassist Mark Schuh [who has recorded with hard-hitters Eric McFadden of P-Funk and Eric Levy and Alan Hertz of Garaj Mahal, both of whom appear on Schuh's debut solo album] and drummer Adam Perry [formerly of Rotary Dial Records' instrumental indie-jazz wizards Whitford].

In just six months, Sunfire Pleasure's accolades have grown to include a two-day spot at this year's High Sierra Music Festival; an honorable mention in the Relix Jamoff competition, which awarded 15 artists out of more than 200 nationwide entries; and numerous West Coast performances at such popular and well-respected venues as San Francisco's Red Devil Lounge, The Independent and Boom Boom Room, Portland's Mt. Tabor Theatre and GoodFoot Lounge, and Los Angeles's 14 Below, where they opened for Hellride, the side-project of former Jane's Addiction drummer Stephen Perkins and punk legend Mike Watt. In addition, California radio shows such as David Gans' renowned "Dead to the World" on KPFA Berkeley, Barry Smolin's nationally-acclaimed "The Music Never Stops" on KPFK Los Angeles and Mike Powers' popular "Sunday Night Jam" on KFOG San Francisco have featured Sunfire Pleasure tracks, and DJ Chihiro featured the band in an on-air interview on alternative underground station San Francisco Liberation Radio.
