The Funky Dawgz Brass Band

The Funky Dawgz Brass Band

The Funky Dawgz Brass Band is starting to create a buzz of excitement in and around the state of Connecticut. Initially formed as a vehicle to connect, engage, inspire and rejuvenate music education in Connecticut’s inner city schools, the Funky Dawgz have attracted a following along the way as a result of their exciting and passion filled musical performances.

The Funky Dawgz sound is greatly influenced by the great New Orleans Brass Bands of past and present! After having the opportunity to meet and interact with a few of their New Orleans brass band heroes, The Hot 8 Brass Band and The Soul Rebels, the Funky Dawgz deepened their commitment to help bring this great musical tradition to the Northeast and beyond. The Funky Dawgz sound is influenced by the sounds of The Treme Brass Band, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, The Rebirth Brass Band, The Soul Rebels, The Hot 8 Brass Band, The Lil’ Rascals Brass Band, and The Youngblood Brass Band.

The Funky Dawgz have one common thread that binds all of the members of the group together, everyone has been a member of “The Pride of Connecticut” The University of Connecticut Marching and Pep Bands, representing the university and the state throughout the country. Still representing their great school and state, the Funky Dawgz mission is to uplift and inspire through top-notch musical performances.

Get ready to clap your hands, stomp your feet, sing, shout, and have a great time, ‘cause when the Funky Dawgz come to town they are going to “Shut It Down.” Peace, Love, and Funky Dawgz!
