The Funky Dawgz Brass Band

The Funky Dawgz Brass Band

Featured on Live For Live Music's Brass Bands You Need To Know, as well as on stage with Dispatch at Madison Square Garden the Funky Dawgz have exploded onto the live music scene playing a mix of traditional New Orleans R&B, original music, and today’s top hits with a brass twist. One of the biggest up-and-coming touring acts these high energy horns are bound to get everyone around them dancing all night to that irresistibly funky music!

When the band is not playing shows they are giving back to the community! The Funky Dawgz aim to connect, engage, inspire and rejuvenate music education in inner city schools across the country. The band frequently gives performances and master classes to young musicians in elementary, middle, and high schools across the state.

Come see what the buzz is all about with the Dawgz by checking the tour dates! From the first beat of the bass drum to the last stroke of the snare, the Funky Dawgz Brass Band will always “Shut It Down”!
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!
