The Som'n Fierce Band debuted their
first TWO performances at Brothers
Nightclub and Big Daddy's in
Tallahassee, Florida. Their setlist was
made up of many of the finest songs
from the Danny Bedrosian debut album
of the same name in energetic,
groove-infused, live arrangements. The
line-up of The Som'n Fierce Band for the
two ground-breaking performances were:

Danny Bedrosian - keyboards, band director, lead
vocals

Seth Ceders - drums

Mike Maloney - guitar

Duane Day - bass

Teresa Jimenez - back-up vocals

Carly Goodspeed - back-up vocals

DANNY BEDROSIAN & SOM'N FIERCE
resurfaced on a bill alongside
Unfunkwittable and Kendra Foster @
Yianni's in Tallahassee, FL for the start
of the school year in the bustling college
town of Tallahassee, FL on August 24th.

The triple bill/triple threat proved to tear
the house down with three amazingly
diverse sets, ranging from the funk-metal
of Unfunkwittable, to the jazz
balladeering of Kendra Foster, to the
Funk/Soul conglomerate of Danny's
revamped SOM'N FIERCE: the band
was:

Danny Bedrosian - Keyboards & Lead
Vocals, Bandleader
Seth Ceders - Drums & Percussion
Mike Maloney - Guitar & Backup Vocals
Teresa Jimenez - Lead & Backup Vocals
Marc Munoz - Guitar & Backup Vocals
Ral - Bass Guitar

Kendra Foster guested on her
trademark, jazz inflected vocals; Dwayne
Dungey played bass on her set; Jamie
Campbell played bass on the
Unfunkwittable set when Dwayne
Dungey sang lead.

Otherwise the band stayed the same all
night and tore it up with renditions of
songs from Danny Bedrosian's
catalogue, ending the night with a
raucous rendition of Funkadelic's Hit it &
Quit it, featuring guest players.
A great time was had by all.
SOM'N FIERCE
SOM'N FIERCE played their first show in two years, and the two set, five
piece show played at Bird's Aphrodisiac Oyster Shack in Tallahassee, FL to a
packed house of Bozfonk fans and pleasantly surprised local patrons. The
setlist was more jazz inflected in the first set, and quieter, and the second set
a little more full  throttle; The overall vibe was a jazz inflected soul/fusion feel
for the night in general. The setlist was a combination of Somn Fierce, Teresa
Jimenez and Moonchild tunes. The band was:

Danny Bedrosian - Keyboards, Synthesizers, Lead/Backup Vocals, Bandleader

Teresa Jimenez -   Lead/Backup Vocals

Elise Bedrosian - Keyboards, Lead/Backup Vocals

David Kelsay - Drums

Dave Cobb - Bass Guitar

SOM'N FIERCE CONCERT
HISTORY
THE DANNY BEDROSIAN and SOMN FIERCE show held at the

Payne on vocals and man in the box, The Moonchild (the only
other member who had done ANY Somn fierce shows) Elise
Bedrosian on keys and vocals, John Tugboat Deming on Guitar,
and Ken Wilk "Shake" on the bass and backup vocals. A great
lineup for a very special show in one of Danny's favorite
haunts. Worcester's premier entertainment magazine did a

All in all, an incredible set of music, for a great venue just
getting started in Worcester. The band hopes to come back to
the Raven very soon, and all the best to everyone over there!
Thanks to our fans, friends and families for all their support!!
A New Somn’ Fierce band convened at the band’s favorite venue in Tallahassee,
Krewe de Gras, for a special CD release party and performance on October 8th.
The band was Danny’s favorite lineup of Somn’ Fierce yet, in its 6 year history.  
The show was packed and the people got down to an incredible array of Danny
Bedrosian tunes, not just from SERI MISTIK which was sold at the show, but also
from SOMN FIERCE, and some other BRAND NEW unreleased songs as well.

Somn' Fierce is a band that Danny Bedrosian started in 2005; in
addition to his main band Secret Army, Somn' Fierce served as a side
project that Danny worked on during the off days from
Parliament-Funkadelic. It mostly functions within the city limits of
Tallahassee, Florida, but in recent years, has developed popularity up
north, and Bedrosian has created Northern and Southern Somn'
Fierce bands respectively, with the ever shifting personnell lineups;
albeit full of talent and authenticity each and every time. Setlists in
the group's arsenal range from Danny Bedrosian solo tunes, to Secret
Army tunes, to Funk covers, to Armenian folk music, to World music
Jams, to Classical music, to Jazz Standards and on and on.
It's SOMN' FIERCE.
