This is original funk/jazz/groove/jam/hip-hop/reggae music. Plump wants to play music that is immediately fun for both the players and the audience. And they want people to get moving on the dance floor, plain and simple. In performance, Plump strives to listen to each other intently and create a new audio experience every night. The players celebrate a wide variety of influences, and what comes out when these guys play is a gumbo of musical styles-a taste sensation. If you were to investigate the car stereos of the guys in Plump, you would be sure to find The Meters, The Grateful Dead, Bob Marley, Fela Kuti, Beenie Man, The Roots, Faith No More, Dr. John, Jesus Christ Superstar, The O'Jays, and Miles Davis. All influences aside, when these guys get together and start playing, they make Plump music. Period.

The band first got started in the early fall of 2001. Al, Andrew, and Doug spent a few months jamming in Doug's living room, until they grew weary of the next-door neighbor calling the cops for playing too loud. After getting some songs together, the band tested their mettle in some "battle of the bands" in a cheesy bar in downtown Houston. This was Plump's first official gig. They lost. Unfortunately, some heavy metal band won the epic "battle", and looking back Andrew now attributes the loss to the lack of platform shoes and laser lights. Luckily, the disappointment of such a humiliating loss didn't last too long, and the guys soon found themselves playing in venues all over Houston. Soon, Dave and Jason joined the fold on the saxophone. It turned out that they was the icing on the cake, and the Plump sound was finalized. By the summer of 2002, Plump found themselves playing throughout Texas, and then often found themselves being asked to open for touring bands of the "jamband" variety when these bands came to town. As Plump became friends with these bands, their touring circle became wider and wider. The band began driving to Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Colorado for shows. In 2003, Plump released their first CD and launched their website at In addition, Plump was selected and featured as being "On the Verge" in the July 2003 issue of Relix magazine. In April 2004, the band released their second CD titled, "Voyage", which features many of Houston's fine musicians making guest appearances. The future looks bright, and Plump is looking forward to playing in your neck of the woods.

Some of the best Funk/Jazz you've never heard
A remarkable album. One by Houston's own Plump. A Funk/Jazz/Groove/Reggae/Hip Hop band which is starting to get a following. Hell even Relix magazine called them a band on the rise. The strongest track on he is Voyage of the Dawn Treader which is a progresive song with many different genre's mixed in. This album is great but to really hear Plump is to hear and see them live. Look for there show dates to see when they come to your town. And another thing Plump is taper friendly so get out your taping machines.

Fan of Plump

This is a must-try album if you like funk/jazz/groove music. The more you listen to the Plump songs, the more interesting you find in their music. It just likes the name of the album-Voyage- the journey to their passion in playing and enjoying the music. Also, Don't miss out the Plump show...

very funky
These guys are a smokin', funky Houston band whom you should check out while they are still playing small venues. I caught them opening for Rebirth Brass Band. Definitely a band on the rise. You just might shake everything you got!
