Lyric-free since their inception in 2004, Killer Filler is the spawn of keyboardist, guitarist, and songwriter Chris "Crispy" Bess -- an all-instrumental five-piece outfit to meld his twin penchants for 1960s Memphis soul and California surf music. Twang, spy, funk, lounge and swing flavor Crispy's songwriting as well as the B-side nuggets that he picks to arrange and cover. The Ventures, Booker T. and the MGs, The Shadows, The Champs and The Meters all get nods in live sets. .. Crispy commands the Hammond organ and a six-string taboot while guitarists Bryon Settle and Pete Gamble join on dual stratocasters, Bryon's drop-jaw phrasing colored by Pete's swirling psychedelia. The rhythm section is a seamless and versatile unit with Kevin Conolly on drums and Rusty Miller on electric bass... Instrumental music sets a party vibe that's infectiously groovy. In addition to large outdoor events (Artsplosure, First Night Raleigh, Festival For The Eno, The Instro Summit, Elvisfest, Heavy Rebel Weekender, Carrboro Music Festival) and local clubs (Cat's Cradle, The Cave, Slim's Downtown, Local 506), Killer Filler plays private and corporate events. From festivals and concert halls to weddings and shindigs, folks respond to a sound that's fresh and familiar all at once.
