Deep Banana has sold out such venues as the Webster Theater in Connecticut (1200 capacity) and Irving Plaza in New York city (1100 capacity). In 2001, DBB played a co-bill with Maceo Parker in the new Denver Fillmore to 2750 fans, was featured at such festivals as JVC Jazz Newport, Jazz Aspen/Snowmass, and Gathering of the Vibes, toured with the Allman Brothers Band, and performed in Japan as well.
You’d better believe that after churning out two well received albums, Live in the Thousand Islands (1997) and Rowdy Duty (1999), and over 150 of the funkiest performances of 2000, the group earned the backing and support of legendary Allman Brothers’ Band drummer & Flying Frog Records founder, Butch Trucks, for its third release entitled, Feel The Peel (Flying Frog Records 2001). And, with producer Tom Dowd (Allman Brothers Band, Eric Clapton, Aretha Franklin) on board, this new CD is bound to please not only diehard DBB fans, but a broad radio audience as well. Deep Banana’s founding member and guitarist James “Fuzz” San Giovanni beams, “This album can really appeal to anyone – fans of old school funk, fans of jazz, pop, rock, whatever. It has a more concise feel to it. Shorter tracks, more continuity.”
DBB are James “Fuzz” San Giovanni, guitar/vocals, Eric Kalb, drums, Benj LeFevre, bass, Jen Durkin, vocals, Rob Somerville, sax/vocals, Rob Volo, trombone/guitar/vocals, Cyrus Madan, keyboards and Johnny Durkin, percussion. Previous members Hope Clayburn, sax/flute/ vocals, and Bryan Smith, trombone/vocals.
The band’s incessant touring and high-energy performances demonstrate the deep love, respect, and enthusiasm the members have for what they do.
