I hadn't thought of these guys in a long time.  This morning though I had the cd in (and BLASTIN') all the way to work!

Infectious Grooves were (are) a funk - metal mashup that featured some (now anyway) big names.  Mike Muir and Dean Pleasants of Suicidal Tendencies, Stephen Perkins from Janes Addiction and Robert Trujillo from Metallica! (Imagine Parliament meets Anthrax meets ... Richard Pryor)

This fantastic band ... a bass players wet dream ... are putting the original lineup back together for the 2013 Orion Music and More Festival!

As if I didn't have enough reasons for wanting to be at Orion this year!

(Original guitarist Adam Siegel won't be there so Jim Martin from Faith No More is handling that job!)

If you're unfamiliar with the band, check out the video below!  If you ARE familiar with Infectious Grooves, how cool would it be if "Sarsippius" made an appearance also!  Yeah, he's still around! (Hence the Richard Pryor remark earlier ... he's even got a facebook page!)

Maybe they'll let him introduce the band!!
