    The Staxx Brothers are a high energy American band, hailing from Seattle, Washington, that has spent the last seven years crafting an incredible new sound they’ve branded Hard Ass Soul. It’s quite simply the most danceable and hip shaking brand of rock & roll to hit US streets since Motown left Detroit. Where modern Rock most often has forgotten its Roll, The Staxx Brothers make it back to the juke joint, and take you back to the black church, dragging modern rock by its collar right back to its birthright - with an epic flare that matches any of the classics. “Staxx Brothers proved the closest thing to vintage Funkadelic I’ve ever witnessed, right down to the janky thrift store costumes and impolite wilding. A huge mob on stage, they’ve imbibed whatever elixir Bootsy, George and Bernie swallowed back in the day, getting up there and proudly playing rump rattlin’ cartoons and then backing it up with whomping good musicianship and tunes you gotta be dead to resist... Festival planners: Book these guys! You will not be sorry.“ - Dennis Cook: Jambase.com

Q: Can we expect more shows once the album is done?

A: Absolutely! Once we've completed the recording process, we'll be playing a big CD release show in San Francisco, followed by a regional CD release tour in the late spring and a national CD release tour in the late summer. Thanks for asking.
