Funky Dawgs Brass Band
Featured on Live For Live Music’s Brass Bands You Need To Know, the Funky Dawgz sound is akin to the streets of New Orleans with a jazz, rock, hip hop, and R&B flair. With our high energy horns, The FDBB is quickly becoming one of 2017’s biggest up-and-coming acts.
The Funky Dawgz have appeared at nationally recognized venues and festivals such as: Madison Square Garden, Okeechobee Music Festival, The Capitol Theatre, Brooklyn Bowl, The Blue Nile, The Stone Pony, Daryl’s House, Peach Music Festival, Camp Bisco, Gathering of the Vibes, Catskill Chill Music Festival, the Hartford Jazz Festival, and countless others!
I Anbassa delivers high energy, all original Roots Reggae grounded in traditional island music and laced with rock, funk, nyabinghi, and afro-beat. Bringing forward a fresh, new and infectious sound, they explode on stage with irresistible hooks and bubbling rhythms that instantly get the crowd grooving and singing along. With over three hours of original music and a vast catalog of classic Reggae covers, this band can accommodate any crowd; large or small, young or old. Their songs promote self-awareness, consciousness, healthy living, positivity and, of course, Jah love.
Based out of Southern Connecticut, I Anbassa formed in the summer of 2009 and matured quickly. To date, they have played with Steel Pulse, Stephen Marley, the Mighty Diamonds, Tribal Seeds, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Lettuce, and Deep Banana Blackout.
Downtown Thursday’s after party is always at Sazon y Mambo.
