Funky Butt Brass Band
The Funky Butt Brass Band was formed in 2008 by six talented musicians who respect and revere the New Orleans brass band tradition. The FBBB takes traditional New Orleans brass tunes and gives them a twist, in the style of Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Rebirth and Bonerama. But don’t be surprised if you also hear Motown, Southern rock, Chicago blues and St. Louis R&B in the mix.
The FBBB was recently named Best Jam/Funk Band in the Riverfront Times Music Awards for the second consecutive year. They have played such festivals as Roots N Blues N BBQ, Blissfest, Beale Street Music Festival, Taste of St. Louis, Microfest and Gumbo Ya Ya, and have opened for some of legendary Louisiana artists, including Dr. John, Rebirth Brass Band and Big Sam’s Funky Nation.
