"Just imagine the chops it takes to be voted the funkiest act in the world's funkiest town.

Out of the sweat-drenched, hard-partying, all-night mayhem of New Orleans comes Papa Grows Funk, winners of [NOLA local music magazine] OffBeat's Funkiest Band award for two years running.

All the requisite ingredients for an ear-tickling musical gumbo are here: steaming Hammond, chinky guitar, wailing sax, and, of course, a rhythm section heavy enough to keep you anchored to the dance floor.

Following in the footsteps of the legendary Meters, PGF keeps its music unbelievably tight and its beats syncopated but greases it up with loose, jazzy improvisation. DON'T MISS THIS SHOW!"


John Gros (vocals, organ)

June Yamagishi (guitar)

Jason Mingledorff (saxophone)

Jeffrey "Jellybean" Alexander (drums)
