Far Out West brings a unique and energetic brand of funk that features groovy beats and rootsy vocals. The quartet performs a spectrum of sounds; their original songs fuse together soulful folk-inspired lyrics with crunchy instrumental endeavors guided by the stylings of jazz and rock. Popular cover songs by artists like James Brown, The Grateful Dead, The New Mastersounds, and Sharon Jones are also often sprinkled into the set list. Far Out West has been performing around the Pacific Northwest since 2016 and consists of Liz Chibucos (guitar and vocals), Chad Kimbler (mandolin), Danny Lee (bass), and Forest Carter (drums).
