WIN TICKETS: The Budos Band at Mezzanine 11/9


The Budos Band will be upon you Saturday at Mezzanine in San Francisco if good times are meant to be had. Various members of the ensemble may look familiar, as some of these funkified musicians also perform with Antibalas, Menahan Street Band and Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings amongst others. Frequently labeled afro-soul, Budos Band have traditionally built cool grooves from elements of jazz, soul & funk through driving percussion and melodies provided by snazzy brass & woodwind work.

It’s been a solid three years since Budos released new material, but according to SF Weekly, the show at Mezzanine Saturday will witness a slew of new material that will be on their upcoming fourth LP, Black Sabbath. In the SF Weekly interview, sax player Jared Tankel said, “We want to take our increased influence from ’70s rock and make that work for Budos, but maybe not with as much of the Afrobeat thing or Ethiopian jazz thing that really shined through in the earlier records.”

Tankel also added the group has “10 solid songs tracked. The majority of work is done, we just need the final push so we have the best stuff there.” Considering the show at Mezzanine Saturday is the only live appearance the Budos Band have on calendar, expect a one-off treat to soundtrack your Saturday night. Hell, this show Saturday may be the barometer they need for the final push.

Afrolicious and Motion Potion will be at Mezzanine to get things started early.
