The Funky Butt Brass Band was formed in 2008 by six talented musicians who respect and revere the New Orleans brass band tradition. The Funky Butt Brand Band takes classic New Orleans brass tunes and sprinkles in their own brand of special Saint Louis musical magic. At any performance they will also add some Chicago blues, Memphis soul, southern rock and St. Louis R&B.
The band has released six studio albums, including two holiday records. In 2020, they released Onward, a collection of seven brand-new original tunes and five inventive cover songs, including “Such a Night,” a tribute to the late New Orleans artists Mac Rebbenack, a/k/a Dr. John.
The FBBB has appeared at numerous festivals, including the King Biscuit Blues Fest, Beale Street Music Festival, Roots N Blues N BBQ, the Big Muddy Blues Festval, and Blissfest. They have been privileged to share the stage with some of their musical heroes, including Dr. John and the Lower 911, Rebirth Brass Band, Bonerama, Hot 8 Brass Band, New Orleans Suspects, and the Royal Southern Brotherhood.
For one of the normally busiest bands in St. Louis, this Fox appearance will mark their first since January 3.
