Funky Dawgz Brass Band
Funky Dawgz Brass Band
The Funky Dawgz Brass Band are one of the premier touring acts on the live music scene today. Emerging from Connecticut, these young men have engulfed the spirit and traditions of New Orleans as well as earned the respect from local musicians who grew up and reside in the city. It is impossible not to enjoy yourself during a show as they play a contagious upbeat mix of traditional New Orleans R&B, original music, hip hop, funk, and today’s top hits with a brass twist.

They have toured nationally from coast to coast, as well as internationally and have been featured in all corners of the live music scene. From playing sold out shows at Madison Square Garden as the horn section for Dispatch, to Camp Bisco, to closing out The Peach Music Festival, their performances flow seamlessly from EDM festivals to jam band festivals to traditional New Orleans second line parades. They were also recently featured multiple times on national televised programming on ESPN (house band for March Madness Tournament Challenge, opening segment of First Take).

There is a reason they were featured as one of Live For Live Music's Brass Bands You Need To Know. The Funky Dawgz are dropping jaws. These high energy horns have been featured on bills with Dispatch, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, We The Kings, Snarky Puppy, The Soul Rebels, Lettuce, The Motet, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Rebirth Brass Band, Twiddle, Turkuaz, Kung Fu, Bernard Purdie, Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, and the list continues.

Come see what all the hype is about.

Ain’t no party like a Funky Dawgz party, ‘cus a Funky Dawgz party don’t stop!
NEO Project
NEO Project
Dwight Carroll, former music director for Shalamar, Papa John Creach, Betsy Pecanins & various Motown artists, invited 6 extremely talented musicians living in Ithaca, New York to collaborate in building a tantalizing & powerful musical energy, Neo Project. Drawing from R&B, Funk, Blues, Jazz, Afro-Cuban, Rock & Reggae music, Neo Project offers an authentic fresh twist on new pockets of soulful grooves.

In NEO Project, John White unleashes his arsenal of keyboard proficiency with a measure of taste & vigor. His keyboard mastery encompasses countless genres of musical expression. Equally adept in jazz, classical, New Orleans & all forms of pop music, Professor White enriches the texture of NEO Project's multi-layered sound.

Franklin Henry Jr. feels the funk in his bones as he lays down the bottom groove on his electric bass. Franklin's ability to drive a strong funk pattern provides this group with the foundation it needs to stabilize it's energy; grounded at the core.

Tommielee Tallman can artfully ride a melody through all the twists & turns a song can offer. She creates her own soulful path of rhythm & blues & jazz tinged vocals, leading the band through a crescendo of chord progressions to its timely climax.

“Where words leave off, music begins.” Experience Neo Project for yourself!
