HousePlant Plant.png



House Plant is a Philly based band with roots in neo-psychedelia along with influences of classic 70s R&B and funk. The group takes chilled out psych vibes, dripping with effects and special sounds, and roots it all with some serious funk grooves that will get you movin! The members of House Plant believe in the power of spontaneous creation and all House Plant shows are based largely in improvisation. We just go with the flow, ya know?


House Plant was formed when front man “Mr. Smith” accidentally stumbled upon a time traveling synthesizer which transported him from 1974 to the present day. Upset with the way modern music had turned out, Mr. Smith set out to make a change. He recruited band members Jeff "Bamboo" Ormsby (drums) and Scott Goodman (bass) to help aid the crusade. With their combined 32 years of experience, they are bringing the power of the groove back to the people and to revitalize the spirit of the funk that had been forgotten long ago. To this day, House Plant is preaching the gospel of the jam and reminding the world of the awesome uniting power that music holds!
