ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"A Funky Butt Family Christmas" is the second holiday release from this St. Louis-based group of musicians who respect and revere the New Orleans brass band tradition. It features the band backing up some of St. Louis's finest singers -- Emily Wallace, Brian Owens, Roland Johnson, Big Mike Aguirre, Steve Ewing and Al Holliday -- performing a mix of holiday favorites. Guest artists Dave Grelle, Matt Henry, Derick Tramel, Ben Reece, Matt Brinkmann, Emma Tiemann and Andy Hainz all make fine contributions to this fun effort by the band's extended musical family. Songs covered include Darlene Love's "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)," Donny Hathaway's "This Christmas," and Albert King's "Santa Claus Wants Some Lovin'," among others. Plus the band's all-star original holiday composition, "Because It's Christmas," a sort of "We Are The World" written in the wake of some of St. Louis's much-publicized troubles.

“For members of the Funky Butt Brass Band from St. Louis, tribute takes the form of a working brass band, and they are nothing if not reverential. These cats can play, and they offer nothing but praise for the traditional brass band. The horns are the key, of course, and they perform admirably.” -- Offbeat, New Orleans Music Magazine

“The horn chops and percussion are right on the money. Without question, these guys know their way around a horn! The infectious grooves are enough to recommend this effort.” -- Blues Blast Magazine
