Some stories have a moral and should be repeated. Some stories, well, seem to live at the edge of that stagnant pool of ditchwater off a dirt road in the panhandle of Oklahoma, just on the other side of the Colorado state line. And some are the stuff of legend. This story, however, is none of those. 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.
But seriously, Gumbo le Funque is a band from Colorado that specializes in New Orleans-style funk, powered by the mightiest rhythm section in the region and led by longtime Denver jazz saxophonist, Jason Justice. Their influences include Maceo Parker, Galactic, Dr. John, Professor Longhair, The Funky Meters and the entire tradition of the second line and traditional jazz. 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.
