Astronomical Unit is a group of four musicians who use their talents and abilities in the eternal pursuit of funkiness. It is an established fact that witnesses of the nocturnal rituals have been affected by temporary bouts of involuntary body movements, feelings of ecstasy, and overwhelming urges to consume large amounts of beverages and greasy food. Astronomical Unit has been performing for several years with Bill 'Greezy Fingers' Smith on keyboards, alto sax and vocals; Dave 'Super T' Tran on guitar, percussion and vocals; Andy 'Dr. Gravymaster' Mandiak on bass; and Brian 'Soup Kitchen' Platino on drums and percussion. All songs written by Astronomical Unit are a collaboration of several band members with eclectic tastes in music which gives each tune it's own vibe, yet all have a similar focus: to shake booties whenever and wherever possible.
