Ol’ Savannah began as a roots-blues duo in the Winter of 2009. Speedy Johnson and Bartleby J Budde performed haunting Piedmontese acoustic tunes on smaller stages, while honing in on a style of blues influenced first by Mississippi John Hurt and Mississippi Fred McDowell. With the introduction of accordionist Kevin Labchuk in May of 2010, together with drummer Matt Outerbridge and bassist Chris Byrne, the group evolved to a bigger sound, less haunting, but dark nonetheless. The quiet sounds of Piedmont were exchanged for the violent tides of the Delta, as the group incorporated more electric guitar and lap steel guitar into their repertoire.

images/2014/12/705.jpg
www.soundcloud.com/thefunkof40kyears
The Funk of Forty Thousand Years started in August 2007 in Michigan. The core mission is to deliver live organic funk and soul to the masses. As the band sound matured, sprinkles of jazz improvisation started to percolate and are now a permanent fixture. Yasin Jackson has been writing and singing for many years and pounced on the opportunity to join the band. Her voice has been compared to Carole King, Erykah Badu and others. Her lyrics and vocal scats provide plenty of food for thought. Bassist Michael P. Jackson is the main composer and brought the band together. He started playing music at the age of 8, learning clarinet. Through the years he has learned many instruments including alto, tenor, and berry sax. At age 19 a date with a bass would change things forever. The Funk of Forty Thousand Years features one of the hottest rhythm sections on the scene today. In February 2008 the band completed the 2008 RPM Challenge to write, record, mix, master and press an album of 100% original material in one month. The album �One Foot� is available at all shows and will be on itunes in the coming months. The band has set its sights on every town needing some funk East of the Mississippi and plans a West Coast stint in late 2008. The Funk of Forty Thousand Years makes its NYC Manhattan debut on May 26th.

Challenger saw how passionate the musicians were about their craft which encouraged him to take his own art seriously. At age 16, Challenger found a niche in the music business as he scaled through genres like Hip Hop, Zouk, Soca, Bouyon, and Reggae.

As I aged, music remained an integral part of my life and has been the driving factor in every major life decision I’ve made. I have managed to be dropped out of school for longer than I’ve been in school and so have found that, as opposed to an institution, my surroundings, experiences, and other musicians have taught me most about songwriting.

Trombonist/composer/conductor JC Sanford is a musician of rare breadth, deeply rooted in the traditions of Jazz and Classical music, yet constantly pushing at their boundaries. Equally at home in many roles, Sanford works regularly as a composer, performer, arranger and conductor. As a trombonist, JC has performed with many of the jazz world's leading figures, such as Matt Wilson, Danilo Perez, and George Schuller. His improvisational trio Triocracy - with saxophonists Andy Laster and Chris Bacas - serves as an outlet for his unique compositions and improvisational concepts. As co-leader of My Band Foot Foot (along with John McNeil and Andrew Green), Sanford has helped breed a "mad science project" exploring and recreating music of The Shaggs. An interest in film has led to several projects, including recordings with Danilo Perez for the soundtrack of Hugo Pool - directed by Robert Downey. JC's original works often defy labels such as 'Jazz' or 'Classical'. While he originally built a reputation through big band writing, JC has forayed into many other areas - composing for solo piano, wind and brass formations and various mixed chamber ensembles. A founding member of the composers' federation Pulse (with Darcy James Argue & Joseph C.
