Gumbohead is a St. Louis-based collective of rhythmic rapscallions and tuneful tricknologists who find great joy playing music born in and influenced by New Orleans and southwest Louisiana. To hear the band is to experience the full spectrum of Louisiana dance music, including zydeco, funk, blues, jazz, r&b and traditional “second line” tunes, along with some suitably spicy original numbers.
The Funky Butt Brass Band was created in 2008 by six musicians who respect and revere the New Orleans brass band tradition. Made up of members of Gumbohead, The Feed, Musica Slesa, Bob Kuban’s Everyday People and other St. Louis musical groups, the FBBB brings traditional New Orleans brass tunes and gives them a funky new flavor, in the style of the Dirty Dozen or Rebirth Brass Band. Don’t be surprised if you also hear a little Motown, Southern rock, blues and some straight-ahead ’70s funk. The Funky Butt Brass Band is guaranteed to get your toes tapping, your feet marching and kick any party into overdrive.
