THE GUMBO BROTHERS

Posted: April 12, 2008 by dillion in Uncategorized

One might expect that the deliciously retro soul/jazz/funk band, The Gumbo Brothers, would have Southern roots, but one would be wrong. Hailing from Venice Beach, the New Orleans-style quartet makes the kind of saxy, wah-wah, keyboard-driven funk that was popular before most of today’s music buyers were born, but it doesn’t sound outdated. It’s dance music, sho’ ‘nuff, and the band’s new album never slows down. It’s worth checking out the record, but I’m betting that the real event is their live shows. Here’s hoping they come through Virginia soon.

For fans of: The Neville Brothers; The Meters; Dr. John; Booker T. and the MGs.
