Funky Butt Brass Band

The "second line" has its roots in the traditional jazz funeral
processions of New Orleans. Once the dearly departed was buried, the
brass band would "cut the body loose" by playing uptempo, joyous
music. As they marched, they would be joined by revelers who formed a
line alongside and behind the band. This was known as the "second line."

The Funky Butt Brass Band was formed in 2008 by six musicians who
respect and revere the New Orleans brass band tradition. Made up of
members of Gumbohead, The Feed, Musica Slesa, Bob Kuban's Everyday
People and other St. Louis musical groups, the FBBB brings traditional
New Orleans brass tunes and gives them a funky new flavor, in the
style of the Dirty Dozen or Rebirth Brass Band. Don't be surprised if
you also hear a little Motown, Southern rock, Chicago blues and some greasy
'70s funk. The Funky Butt Brass Band is guaranteed to get your
toes tapping, your feet marching and kick any party into overdrive.
