      Jazz / Soul / Grove
         The Staxx Brothers are a high energy American band, hailing from Seattle, Washington, that has spent the last seven years crafting an incredible new sound they've branded Hard Ass Soul. It's quite simply the most danceable and hip shaking brand of rock & roll to hit US streets since Motown left Detroit. Where modern Rock most often has forgotten its Roll, The Staxx Brothers make it back to the juke joint, and take you back to the black church, dragging modern rock by its collar right back to its birthright - with an epic flare that matches any of the classics.
         "Staxx Brothers proved the closest thing to vintage Funkadelic I've ever witnessed, right down to the janky thrift store costumes and impolite wilding. A huge mob on stage, they've imbibed whatever elixir Bootsy, George and Bernie swallowed back in the day, getting up there and proudly playing rump rattlin' cartoons and then backing it up with whomping good musicianship and tunes you gotta be dead to resist." - Dennis Cook,
         "Left to their own devices with Scott Colburn (Arcade Fire, Animal Collective) at his voodoo lair, an old Finnish church turned recording studio, The Staxx Brothers return with a vengence on We are The Blaxstonz. It's an album that borders on black comedy with heavier social undercurrents; by now as much Chappelle & Carlin as Big Boi and Jagger. It's a good time record that helps you dance through the tough ones. It's HARD ASS SOUL. It's ice cold. This is the way they used to make records. Step real close and you can detect that heavy scent of Howlin' Wolf runnin' wild through a Hip Hop landscape...I can still hear him laughin'." - Dylan Van Keef a super funky , Soul-Jazz-Rare Groove band consisting of Anthony Andreotti- Guitar,
          Scott Reams - Keys & Sax, David Garrity - Bass, John Hoops - Sax,Flute & Sounds, Creed Maggiora - Drums
         The path of the funky man is beset on all sides by the inequities of jive turkeys and the tyranny of those who don't get down. Funky is he who, in the name of good times and good will, shepherds the hip through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his funky brother's keeper and the finder of unfunky children.
