about

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. 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, blues and some straight-ahead '70s funk. The Funky Butt Brass Band is guaranteed to get your toes tapping, your feet stomping and kick any party into overdrive.

Cut The Body Loose is the band's debut CD. It's a broad mix of traditional New Orleans jazz, raucous blues and greasy funk.

Funky Butt Brass Band is:
Adam Hucke -- trumpet, vocals
Aaron Chandler -- trombone, vocals
Ben Reece -- saxophone, vocals
Matt Brinkmann -- sousaphone
Ron Sikes -- percussion
Tim Halpin – guitar, vocals

Track Name: Hey Yeah
Got no money
Ain't got a dime
They're talkin' bailout
Wonder when I'll get mine
To pay my bills on time
I work hard every single day
Then the tax man comes
And takes half my pay
And I got nothin' to say

But I ain't gonna let the blues get me down
I'll just sit back and have another round

Hey yeah
Hey yeah
Drink all my blues away

I grew up in a nice little town
Then they came and shut all the factories down
Now there's no one around
I worked hard every single day
Then a man came
He took my house away
Now I got nowhere to stay

But I ain't gonna let the news get me down
I'll just kick back and have another round

Hey yeah
Hey yeah
Drink all my blues away
