We formed the band in October 2011. At the time, our repertoire was entirely composed of music from the funky vocal tradition of New Orleans. Not dixieland, my friends.  Vocal music, originated by artists such as The Meters, Professor Longhair, King Floyd, Dr. John, Irma Thomas. Music from the 60's, 70's, and 80's. Music to make you happy, move your hips, tap your feet, drink, dance, sweat.

Our material is chosen to introduce artists and music not well known, as well as to play tunes familiar to the hip.  Education and appreciation.  Sleepers and keepers.  Unnamed and famed.  Some examples:

Mardi Gras in New Orleans   
Yellow Moon   
Hey Pocky Way   
Groove Me   
Right Place, Wrong Time   
What'd I Say   
Nowhere to Run   
Chitlins Con Carne   

    Professor Longhair
    The Neville Bros.
    The Meters
    King Floyd
    Dr. John
    Ray Charles
    Martha and the Vandellas
    Kenny Burrell

Plus, not only are we stewards and curators of music for the soul, we also contribute to the tradition with Muffuletta originals.
The Muffulettas.  Funky vocal music for the masses.
