    Original funk/rock/jam band will hold a benefit Aug. 12 at the Monroe Irish Center Monroe - Deep Chemistry, the Hudson Valley-based original funk/rock/jam band, will hold a benefit concert Friday, Aug. 12, at the Monroe Irish Center on North Main Street in Monroe on Friday, Aug. 12, from 9 p.m. to midnight. All money raised will go to Hibernian charities, which supports the Monroe Area Food Bank and Our Fathers Kitchen in Monroe, which supplies cooked meals to those in need. Originally formed in 2003, Deep Chemistry has been creating their unique fusion of melodic hooks and danceable grooves for the better part of a decade. Here’s how the band describes itself on its Web site ( “From their musically rich home base of the Hudson Valley, all the way up and down the East Coast, Deep Chemistry has been gaining fans from their high energy live shows. Their sound can be appreciated by any type of music lover: it has the soul and funk for R&B fans, it is powerful and raw for rock lovers, and even jazz cats can dig on the sophisticated changes and arrangements. “Going through a succession of drummers, the band has been stripped down to it’s two core members, guitarist/vocalist Devin Daversa, who lives in Newburgh, and bassist Zeb Kandros, who lives in Monroe.. The two share a telepathic connection forged from playing hundreds of live shows together and countless hours of jamming. “Deep Chemistry has just released a new e.p., 'For This Moment,’ which is a collection of songs that showcase the band’s creative songwriting and subtle virtuosity. It also features the powerful drumming of Shane Chikeles (the Ataris, Joshua) throughout the album. Special guest Jeremy Baum (Shamekia Copeland Band) lends his magic on the B3 organ on two of the tracks.”
