If you find that your musical and cultural diet has felt a little bland lately and been wondering where you might spice it up, well search no more—you won’t want to miss the master musical chefs of the Jambalaya Brass Band! The Jambalaya Brass Band releases their second CD, On The Funky Side. Their previous outing, It’s a Jungle Out There, resulted in heavy broadcast radio rotation on eighty-five stations, as well as countless Internet radio stations, and charted in the top five of the CMJ Charts, The Roots Music Report and the Cashbox Charts. As with It’s a Jungle Out There, this latest CD includes several innovative original compositions by leader Ric Frank, and a few classic covers, this time by the likes of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band and Booker T. & the MGs.
"Jambalaya could stand side-by-side with most any New Orleans brass band in terms of sheer exuberance and energy . . . a party from start to finish."—Henry Smith for All About Jazz
Like It’s a Jungle Out There, their previous CD, On the Funky Side is a rollicking musical journey and a great celebration of American music while at the same time an appetizing preview of what this group is capable of live. Playing On the Funky Side at a party is a sure bet, and seeing these talented players live really brings the party directly home to you.
