Mr. Lewis and the Funeral 5 are Gregory Lewis on vocals and guitar, James Sheeran on drums, David Warwick on piano and percussion, Danny Smith on bass, Rob Metcalfe on guitar and percussion and James Bonura on saxophone and percussion. Created in the Michigan-laden mind of Greg Lewis in 1994, the original lineup of the Funeral five was born in late 2002. In 2007, the lineup saw a bass player change and the addition of long-awaited live saxophone to provide girth to the sound and fidelity to their debut album, "Murder and the Art of the Dance". Having been interested in the allure of a New Orleans dirge, Greg penned songs with lyrics about murder, drinking and desperation backed by jubilant melodies which have found the band in the perfect undefinable place, or in the words of their new bass player, "macabaret". The band has cut their teeth in the evolving Austin music scene and has proudly taken their songs to other cities in the Lone Star Republic as well as to foreign states. More importantly, they are a band that has set out to prove that funerals can be fun if thrown by the right party planner.
