That's right - these cats ain't related by blood. It's maybe something deeper. They're "funk cousins" - kindred spirits of soul that manifest like Gangstarr. Dusty ole jazz-funk grooves abound, channeled through the hypnotic rhythms of classic hip-hop. Not to mention these fellas are channeling it straight back from the source like real O.G.'s, worshiping at the altar of the primordial supreme funk mother that birthed today's sub-woofer children. Takin' it way back like Jimmy Castor, these maggot-brained Troglodytes are guaranteed to make the party jump off with the quickness. Whether they're flipping joints from your pop's old jazz record collection or bringing some golden-age rap classics to life like Dr. Funkenstein, one thing's for sure - these grooves are relentless, and NASTAY.

Hailing from Washington DC, Blueheart Revival combines blues, rock, soul, and jam sounds in to a highly-potent blend of music in the American tradition. With Bobby Thompson (lead vocals, guitars) and Colin Thompson (guitars) soaring in the guitar realms, Kurt Kratch (bass) and Gary Crockett (drums) lay as solid a foundation as a rhythm section can. The group puts on high-energy, soulful shows that are sure to win over fans wherever they perform.
Inventive singer/songwriter/ guitarist / voice-instrumentalist and former subway musician, Lipbone Redding revs up the party and creates original songs that effervesce with New Orleans swing, Memphis grooves and New York City style. Known for his ability to use his vocal to sound exactly like a trombone, itís hard to tell the difference -- unless you witness the phenomenon live. Lipbone and his two-man orchestra make for a show greased with uncanny riffs of vocal trumpeting, booming mouth percussion, hilarious side moments and esoteric lyrics.
