The B-Side Players are a 9-piece band part of a new movement in popular music. A band that honors the international cross-pollination that has always made music the universal language. They use any beat that catches their ear,
regardless of geography or genre, to create a compelling, horndriven, polyrhythmic groove.
They continue exploring the multifaceted grooves of Latin America and the Caribbean, incorporating the sounds of
Cuba, Jamaica, Mexico and Brazil with the funk, rock, jazz and hip-hop rhythms of their homeland, dropping bits of
Cumbia, Salsa, gritty street Samba, Son Montuno, Jarocho and Boogalo into the mix.
The B*Side Players have been laying down their own inimitable latin global funk since they came together in 1994.
Their incendiary live shows have defined them as local favorites with 10 San Diego Music awards. Meanwhile their
albums showcase a band with restless musical intelligence, effortlessly blending genres to fashion their own forward
looking, latin flavored soul music. As an eight piece band the players are known for igniting crowds with their fierce
rhythms and uplifting message of unity and consciousness. Meanwhile always keeping their focus on the political
climate of the world and nation. The B-Side Players are a living and breathing cultural art experience for the mind
body and soul.
The full band offically started in January 2013, but Felix and Brody started the project a year or so before. We are a group of serious musicians looking to play as many shows and meet up with as many bands as possible along the way. Oranguhtango lives in Marin and Sonoma counties but will travel wherever we are desired. We are in the process of recording our first offical EP! It will be available online ASAP!!!
