It's impossible not to have a good time when you're in the presence of the Funky Butt Brass Band. This musical juggernaut brings funk, soul, rhythm & blues, rock, pop, jazz, and anything else they might find under the kitchen sink together to give audiences a truly memorable experience each time they step on stage. Inspired by the brass band tradition of New Orleans, Funky Butt puts their own St. Louis stamp on everything they do...and we wouldn't have them do it any other way!
“How did St. Louis exist so long without a true, bonafide New Orleans-style brass band? Since Funky Butt Brass Band came on the scene, it’s been impossible to miss the six-headed beast. At parades, at barbecues, at community radio festivals and especially at a certain oyster bar on Broadway, Funky Butt is a steady-gigging presence that references its Crescent City inspiration, but infuses plenty of 314-specific funkiness as well. Credit the oft-theatrical vocalizations of members Tim Halpin, Adam Hucke and Aaron Chandler for the band’s never-the-same-set-twice bravado, but recognize that “brass” is in the band name for a reason: These cats can blow.”
