"The Hornheads have the most perfect, stanky funk, tight-ass horn section ever!"
-Ricky Peterson - producer, singer/songwriter, keyboardist
Since recording "5 Heads Are Better Than 1" (1997), we've kept very busy performing and working on over 100 CD projects with many talented musicians. Fortunately, we found enough time to make another Hornheads CD. We probably spent as much time joking and laughing during the recording sessions as we did playing. "Fat Lip" represents the pure energy and spirit of the Hornheads.
This group of extraordinarily talented horn players has been gathering international acclaim from artists and critics alike, since 1991. Top session players all, members of the Hornheads have performed and/or recorded with artists such as Prince, Janet Jackson, Rod Stewart, Babyface, James Brown, Jimmy Jam, Aretha Franklin, Pedro Abrunhosa, Louie Bellson, Lenny Kravitz, Ray Charles, Maceo Parker, Sammy Davis Jr., Clark Terry , Dizzy Gillespie, Tony Bennett, Doc Severinsen, and many others.
While members of Prince and the NPG (1991-2000), the Hornheads recorded on more than 20 CDs and performed for over 2 million concert goers in 20 countries. Q Magazine, London, described them as a "peerless horn section...playing in bare brilliant syncopation, punching with staccato precision beyond science or synclavier. Prince splashes their insouciant versatility all over the set list."
