Before Funkiphino was formed, Chris Fischer (keyboards) and Kevin Lehman (drums - original Funkiphino, current Champions) were students at CU Boulder. Shortly after meeting, the two joined with Loretta Craig (vocals), Mike McDonnell (guitar), Joel Cooper (bass) to form the Boulder based soulful rock infused band Cheshire Cat.
The group performed regularly from 92-94 in Boulder and along the front range playing a mix or originals and covers. After Cheshire Cat ended, Chris and Kevin went on to form what became Funkiphino.
On Friday, February 7, 2020 we are pleased to announce that Cheshire Cat will be reuniting and performing for the first time together in 25 years at the Wild Game in Longmont.
