A trippy, mind altering experience, we suggest you buckle your safety belts, and brace yourself for a sonic experience never before realised.
Imagine a pulsing baseline transcending your harshest memories of your harshest realities into a soothing sublime state where liquid guitar fills and ethereal piano chords take you elsewhere but still remind you of the pain from whence you came.
Imagine a funky beat boppin' under somber lyrics crying out in pain, careful not to burn, but ever so eager to move you to reflection.
Imagine a funky groove that has you milking every inch of a sweat soaked dance floor while all the coolies at the bar bop their heads to the funky beat permeating the very core of their souls.
We invite you to enter the world of chamberlain bleu, "where it's always nighttime."
AJ (bass) and Reuben (drums) departed chamberlain bleu in 2002. Tom Cirillo (drums) joined the band in 2002. Rob Fritche (bass) and Phil Garin (keys) joined the band in 2003.
