Funky Dawgz, James Zap, Special Guests!

I have a hard time believing that you are visiting this website and clicked on this listing but don't know who the Funky Dawgz are all about. But in case that's true, watch this video, and then make sure you don't miss this show:


Or if you can't watch a video right now, and would prefer some text, read this:

The Funky Dawgz Brass Band is bringing the music of the Big Easy to the North East! Formed in 2012, this 11-piece New Orleans-style brass band is exploding onto the live music scene with a high-energy blend of brass and percussion. Though based in their home state of Connecticut, they are inspired by the rich musical heritage and traditions of the Crescent City. They offer an exciting mix of New Orleans favorites, their own original music, and add a brass twist to today’s top hits!

James Zap

James Zap is everything we hope to be: entertaining, devilishly handsome, and unapologetically blunt. He seamlessly interweaves the sounds of classic tunes with current chart-toppers; beckoning everyone from grannies to grandchildren to the dance floor.

This isn't your typical acoustic-guitarist-in-the-back-corner-of-a-bar set. James' enthusiasm and energy are contagious, plaguing audiences long after he leaves. If you're looking for an entertaining, self-deprecating musical good-guy, look no further...
