How does a bandleader start a swing, surf, spy-espionage group? Well, after an upcoming corporate gig asked bandleader Kevin McCullough to mold his sound around a James Bond-themed party, The Dirty Downtown Jazz Syndicate was born. This San Jose group was a hit at Summer Fest 2011, and has performed at the Cinequest film festival, and various venues in the area.

Live Music: Hoopty Neo Vintage Funk Band Saturday May 4th, 2013 @ 8:00pm

hooptySan Pedro Square Market Live Music: Performing live on Saturday, May 4th @ 8:00pm is Hoopty, the Bay Area's Vintage Neo Funk Band!

Since the dawn of funkilazation, humaloids have expressed themselves through rhythm; beating sticks, skins, and chests in syncopated ecstasy: shaking their butts to the funky result. From the Zulu to the Mahavishnu, from the Mothership to Maceo, Hoopty respects the lineage of funkespians and offers up its own kinky contribution. For Hoopty the groove is preeminent, reigning funky sovereign above all other freaky factors. Hoopty lays down the Boom Thwack first, infuses it with some Uhm Ahh Boom Boom Who Ha, sprinkles on some Bow Chicka Wow, and then schmears some Be Bop Bap Beep Diddly Uhm Thwap on top of it. The result is an intoxicating elixir of 98 proof instrumental funk, sure to get the funkalites dancing and the funkadudes exclaiming, “Ah Yeah.”
