Formed in 1996, the Band That Saved the World is determined to present an entertaining, lively show of original music. Blending such influences as rock, funk, soul, and pop, the band delivers a surprising mix of danceable, eclectic tunes that are designed to make you groove.

"For years, the Band That Saved the World has been known for providing an extra-fun evening of entertainment, guaranteed. With rump-shaking rhythms, Shaft-era chicken-scratch guitar, horny horns that flitter and buzz like bees and frontman Shannon Savoie's ringmaster theatrics, the Lawrence(KS)-based octet definitely knows how to deliver the live goods." - Geoff Harkness (The Pitch, May 2002).

As well as entertaining crowds in club scenes from Boulder to Chicago, the band has frenzied a crowd of 8,000 in Belfort, France, when closing the French International Music Festival in 1999. They have also opened for such established acts as the Moody Blues and Lauryn Hill, as well as Liquid Soul and The Urge.

In addition to countless live releases, TBTSTW has made two self-produced, full-length albums. The first, Struggle To Chill, with its hip grooves, thoughtful lyrics, and dreamy music washes called "soups", showed that the band could be both eclectic and accessible. Their most recent release, Changes, shows that this talented young band can go wherever it wishes with ease and sincerity, and illustrates that they can write toe-tapping, hip-shaking melodies that you'll be singing to yourself the next day.

Focused on creating new music for a new generation, yet incorporating seamless references to classic styles, TBTSTW is destined to turn more and more ears to what they call "grassroots, funky, American, rock-n-roll."

It makes my husband soooooooo happy!
My husband loves this band. Except he's upset they're breaking up. Ah, reliving the Beatles breakup years again

New Orleans Funk Review

Recharge your weary soul with Changes
This is as unique and as fun, and as talented as it gets from music of this region. Stand outs include Secret Sunshine which would make Jamiorquoi jealous, The Name Of Creation - lyrics to ponder and music to soar to. Villa Heights showcases my fav part of this group. The singers. Cosmic Junkie _ This tune is a peral of achievement and worth the cost itself. Even Love N Music is for the masses and goes good with Icehouse.

My daughter was thrilled to receive it!
I haven't listened to the whole thing, but my daughter wanted it for her birthday and loved receiving it! I'm sure she has listened to it many times since Saturday. She knows Sharon Leopold, not that that's relevant, but it is how she was introduced to your band.


Stunning, funky and essential
What can you say about something this good? You need this album!!!


very fast
This was the first time I ever received an online order in under 10 days. The shocker was that I think it only took four(4) days, after purchase. It felt like my order was sent on a lightning bolt. Thank you.


I think your CD is way wild,make some more!!!!!
The music is great. But the words to the song need to be differant.


This CD is lots of fun. I especially like the brassy songs, like "Funkbus", "Changes", and "Let You Go". They remind me of Blood, Sweat, and Tears. The entire CD is grand. No filler material. Definitly added to my regular rotation.


Great cd for fans of funk............and even soul.
This cd is full of hard hittin' funk tunes like "funk bus" and my favorite "villa heights". Changes also has its share of soulful R&B tracks like "changes" and "let you go". The horns always round out the songs no matter what the feel of the tune is. "Lasso the moon" really stands out, almost having a James Taylor or Jim Croce influence about it. Really different direction than where the rest of the cd goes, but done really nice too. Smoke 'em if ya got 'em!

Funky and Amazing
Just received this cd from cdbaby and honestly, if you're crazy for Parliament, Sly, Old Incubus/Red Hot and other funky stuff, YOU GOT TO BUY THIS CD. Only 5$, it's a real joke. An amazing cd!


I ABSOLUTELY love this CD, I got it about a month ago for my birthday and it's about all I've listened to since then!! Ask my future roommates! You guys rock!!
