Michael J. "Dinosaur" Campbell's
For Music & Video sample click hereMusclefunk is one hot-n-sticky-crazy Funky band. The sound and vision of it was created by Manhattanite Michael J."Dinosaur" Campbell. The music is driven by his self-proclaimed Musclefunk guitar style. The sound has many colors but the primary color is red-hot. Rockin' in my House guitar funk! Somewhere between where soul music is going and where it has been.
Dinosaur wields a truly impressive array of sounds. From out of nowhere you'll hear synth- guitar, pianos, organs, percussion, hot stabs and much more. You'll hear everything from Cool Acid-Blue Tones to searing, heart-seeking Hendrix-inspired solo flights. We also like to bring da noise into our mic with a sampler. DJ Loops and beats to real life sounds all help to bring out the colors and emotions of our music! Vocally, Dinosaur delivers his songs in a straight-up, no frills vocal/rap style.
