The Floozies and Funk Jesus visit Jazz Festival this Weekend

Web: Facebook, The Floozies

The funktronic duo The Floozies are bringing their Funk Jesus album tour through New Orleans this week, just in time for the Jazz & Heritage Festival.

Already well through their latest tour, Matt and Mark Hill of the Floozies have added a second stop in New Orleans to celebrate the iconic music festival. The Funk Jesus – Second Coming tour will hit Tipitina’s for a late night show this Friday. It will be the boy’s last stop on the tour before picking up in Cleveland a month from now.

After a rather industrious breakthrough with their 2008 album A Vice of My Ownthe sibling duo began to funk up their beats. They continued to push their infectious electrofunk sound over their next four releases.

Their larger than life single “Love, Sex and Fancy Things” made major waves in 2014. With Matt’s fluorescent guitar solos and Marl’s wobbling kick bass, their signature sound was complete. Previously part of Griz’s All Good Records label, The Floozies’ newest release comes straight from their production team. Perhaps after the mysteries disbanding of Griz’s label?

After stopping by for Jazz Fest, the boys will continue with shows and festival performances through the summer. Major stops include Camp Bisco and a Red Rocks performance featuring Lettuce and the Funk Hunters.

Doors open for Friday night’s show at 1:00 am, with the show starting at 1:30. No support acts have been announced at this time.
