Fusing traditional and experimental funk beats, jazz/funk horns, with rock riffs and melodies, Hurly Burly has emerged as a square peg in the round hole of music genres. Despite the difficulty in trying to categorize or classify their music, Hurly Burly has shown they have the chops to play with bands such as Fishbone, Voodoo Glow Skulls, Phunk Junkeez, Strung Out, and many others.
So what exactly is Hurly Burly music? Who knows, and who cares really. The only thing that matters is if it’s fun and entertaining, which has been the main goal from day one.
In February 2000, Hurly Burly headed into Dog Run Studios, run by Eddie Casillas of the Voodoo Glow Skulls, to record their first 3-song demo, “The Mess We’ve Made.” The band released the 6-song EP, “The Voodoo Sessions,” in December 2000, again enlisting the services of Eddie Casillas. As the band continued to write new songs and play endless gigs (including the most rockin’ backyard BBQ parties their home town of Simi Valley had ever seen), they continued to draw a dedicated following. It was during this time that Hurly Burly really broke out and played in such famous venues as the Roxy, Ventura Theater, and the Whisky-a-Go-Go (where they had the pleasure to play with the Phunk Junkeez twice).
Hurly Burly takes pride in not taking themselves too seriously — a major factor in the band’s ability to create fun, good-time party music with no restrictions. So kick back with a few beers and have some laughs, we’ll provide the music.
