Pimps of Joytime - Sat, Oct 4
The Pimps of Joytime were born out of frontman Brian J's desire to layer his broad range of musical influences -- soul, funk, blues and rock n' roll -- within the freedom of an unapologetic dance groove. Since 2007, the Brooklyn based group has grown from playing basement parties down the street to headlining more than 100 shows each year, with stops along the festival circuit at Bonnaroo, High Sierra, Outside Lands, and more. The Pimps' debut record 'High Steppin' dropped in 2008 on Wonderwheel Recordings to praise from NPR for their "funk laden style," followed by their sophomore release 'Janxta Funk!' in 2011 (shows: 8:00pm, admission: $15).
