This is the story of Gumbo le Funque, a band so dirty, so funky, so dangerous, you’ll slap yo’self for not playing their music since you were the size of a small dog.
Established in 2011, Gumbo le Funque is a Colorado band influenced by the entire tradition of the second line and traditional jazz, Maceo Parker, Galactic, Dr. John, Professor Longhair, The Funky Meters, as well as by the power funk that oozes forth from New Orleans. Their first studio recording, “Funky-Dangerous Party Music, Volume 1,” was released on August 12, 2014 and is now available at iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Google Play, Bandcamp and Deezer in download format and at http://bit.ly/Z6diit for physical CDs.
This muscular groove is funky modern roots music that pays homage to the musical melting pot that is the Big Easy. This is funky-dangerous party music.
