About the ArtistAlthough physically rooted in Detroit, Flophouse's soulful mix of rock, funk, blues and R&B evokes the great music traditions of Memphis, New Orleans and Chicago. Perhaps it's Flophouse's lead singer Victor Colon, who's smoky yet spirited voice, draws frequent comparisons to the legendary Stevie Ray Vaughan. Or drummer Brian “Super B” Smith's and bassist Paul “P-dog” Hunt's unadulterated commitment to “funky groove rock” that has more bodies swaying then Bourbon Street during Mardi Gras. Finally, there's the polished riffage of guitarist Mike “Hollywood” Adkins -who masterfully weaves it all together into a spicy, sonic stew.
Flophouse's extraordinary sound has not gone unnoticed. Hand picked from thousands of entries, Flophouse was chosen to perform at Eric Clapton's Crossroads Festival in Chicago in 2007. Clapton's acclaimed event received massive media coverage in Rolling Stone, VH1, PBS and more. Locally, the band regularly appears at “A List” venues including Robustos Lounge, the Hard Rock Café and the Magic Bag Theatre, in between gracing festival stages across the country. “We play every show as if we are playing a sold out concert at Madison Square Garden …even if it's at Jimmy's Sports Bar and Fish Fry,” explains Super B.
And that's what keeps the fans coming back for more. That, and a guaranteed “booty shaking” experience. Flophouse's funky musical voodoo entices dancers to pack the floor in celebration of a band whose unstoppable grooves also demonstrate a genuine passion for creating music. “We're just four guys who love to make music - and it shows. Our philosophy is simple - make it funky and move the crowd!” affirms Victor Colon.
And that they do; Flophouse's music moves you from the inside out. Currently, in the studio recording their first full length CD, you can get your own taste of Flophouse with their party-inducing EP “Get Loose” (Boiler Room Records), available NOW on CDbaby.com and iTunes!!
