Justin Conn & The Short Bus Mafya / Bio

Surging forth like a crazed-out fusion of Parliament-Funkadelic and Revenge of the Nerds, Justin Conn & The Short Bus Mafya are spreading the Un-Hipster Revolution with their in-your-face Southern Funk ‘n’ Roll. Sure they wear their influences on their sleeves, but they have the decency to apply some mixology to the vibe rather than working the nostalgia tip (let’s leave that for the casinos, yo). This is a band intent on leaving their mark wherever they go, and party people all across the Mid-South have been taking note.

What sets Justin apart from many of the other neo-funksters on the scene is his prolific songwriting. His Memphis heritage is on proud display throughout; Justin sounds like his crib was placed in a corner of the Stax live room while he was fed moonshine in his bottle. Folks regularly pick out the Albert King, Otis Redding, Hendrix, and Bill Withers in the Justin Conn bag of influences, and the resulting familiar-yet-new mix has won fans among all walks. This is Southern Funk ‘n’ Roll for all mankind.

What does this all sound like? A damn good time to get your drink on. If you have an ass to move, this music is for you. Justin Conn & The Short Bus Mafya are getting real. Now y’all get some, too...
